      Hi.

      I don't think you need to raise his donkbet. Just call and then bluff the Turn if he checks. I would also call with many of my stronger hands like KQ and KT so I don't really see a need to raise.

      Even with our monsters like sets, we can always call Flop and then raise the Turn. I think a common mistake is for people to either raise or fold way too much vs donkbets. The appropriate counter is often to just float them more.

      On the turn, you do pick up a combodraw. I would not mind betting the Turn too much but I doubt he folds a JX hand if he donks the Flop with it. So the only aim of betting the Turn is to fold out QT (you could argue that it is a value bet if he is loose and doesnt fold that) and AT.

      On the River I actually think you can hero-call here. You beat straight draws, the 2nd king makes it less likely he has a king too. I also think it isn't going to be too likely for him to value bet with a hand like QJ on the river which favours calling here even more.

      Thanks.
