      Turn: ($7) T (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $5, Hero calls $5

      River: ($17) 4 (2 players)

      Anon table.

      BTN played 35/26 after 45 hands, AFq 36 so far.

      What do you think about donking flop? I dont know his cbetting tendencies, so wanted to avoid a checkback.
      Turn? I dont have a valuebet, but have outs even against a straight, so I ch/called.
      River? He can have some Jx (J7-J9 are most likely, cause JT probably would have raised flop), otherwise would he bluff in this spot at least 29% of the time? I dont know...

      Consider his big turn bet and 60% river bet I don´t think he is bluffing there too often. Also it does not make him valuebet too many worse hands (or any).
      So I would prefer folding river.

      Leading flop is fine- don´t think you get raised too often, but at least your then get 3 streets of value from worse hands.

      best regards,
