      No info on villain

      Villains Line is quite weird - he gives up initiative and then Donks the River.

      I backdoor a Flush.

      Do I raise or call his River Donk?

      Thank you

      It's pretty hard to make an assessment with no info.

      He opens 2BB from MP which is weird. Not betting the flop, who knows, he could do it with a TP.

      When he calls the turn, I think something like, 54o, 54s, A5 (most likely if he's not horrible), Jx some sets and FD's.

      His river bet, looks sized to get value from TP type hands.
      Sooo, I'd go with A5s. Maybe KJ. Then you can probably add some nuts combos.

      Would the A5s and KJ call a raise? I dunno, maybe a small one. I'd probably just call, but that looks like it's missing some value. Any info on the villain would make the decision a lot easier.

      I would raise. Feels like a terrible AK, or somesort of KJ or other random hand. Don't really expect him to check/call many hands that backdoor into the flush on the river. Don't really expect him to c/c any sets or twopairs on the flop either, so pretty sure we're good here almost every time. So would prob raise it to around 12$ or thereabouot.
