      Whatever his intention is with his minidonk on turn, I raise it.

      On the river I'm rly torn on whether to value bet or not.
      Watching it now, I'd say yes as I get value from other Ax, but they are not so many, and his donk on turn made me think of a draw that either closed and trapped (on the turn) and I'm behind or didn't close and won't pay me off on the river anyway.

      Pre and flop are definitely ok.

      Regarding turn, you can either call or raise... If I raise, my intention is usually to check back quite a few rivers.. probably all apary from diamonds. Remember he can still have T9, A9, 89, QJ that beat you on turn but don't want to 3bet with a possible flush there but also don't want you to check back. Basically, the turn raise is for value but with the added benefit of a free showdown. If your hand would not have possibility of getting value from weaker and you'd have Ad without a pair I would not raise turn here, unless I could bluff river. This means that with the Ad as a pair I can't really bet for vlaue if without a pair I wanted to bluff. Your opponent's range is a bit too polarized imo to bet.. too many crap draws that fold and too many hands that have you crushed and never fold.
