      56/4/57 I saw he did triple barrel donk twice.

      I thought it would be fine to make him bluff so I only called.

      However, should I raise/shove flop?

      I prefer raising flop here for value and make a note of his reaction. Him bet/folding that big is going to be great for us in the future. As played, I think calling river is very close.. Qx plays like that, 75 in his range as well.. I think there are a few too many value combos too call a potsize bet but since you've seen him take this line before maybe you have an idea of what he doesn't donk but check/calls instead so we could asign him a better range.
