      Please take a look at this one. Am I correct to call his flop raise? By my calculations I'm getting 25% pot odds to call his raise. Unless he has a better flush draw then I'm golden I think...
      Is my turn bet classed as a donk given that I called his flop raise? I didn't want him to check behind so I lead out.
      When the board pairs on the river I went into check/call mode. No reads but I thought that villain was a solid player given his stack size. He had AQo but in general is it ok to chk/call a river like this or is a block bet/fold to raise a better idea? Or even bet/call river...?

      Hi Red,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Why do we cbet only half pot here? This will usually invite raises/lighter bluffcatchers so we should cbet a similar amount to what we'd valuebet. I'd make it at least 0.10-0.12 here.

      As played calling is marginal at best because there are many better draws available however a lot of his range is going to be Qx as well.

      Your turn is indeed a donk and I'm assuming you are donk/folding? We should be.

      As played the river is a good card because all Qx hands are now trips (or fullhouse in the case of KQ) and he has 22/33 occasionally. I think that a bet/fold there is much better than a check/call because we really don't know if he can bet his Qx hands. Both betting or ck/calling are thinner because he can still have better flushes/full houses.

      We can bet about 0.8 or so and fold to a shove.
