      Hi Lunitis,

      These type of donk bets are usually a weak hand trying to see a cheap river or trying to see "where it's at". By weak I mean a hand like Qx, TT, JJ, etc. He can occasionally also have a nut flush betting to induce but I think that's a lot more rare.

      So my play would be to raise/fold the turn to something like $6-$7 for thin value and free showdown.

      And if he call? Bet the river (blank)?

      I did say that we raise for free showdown :) so I would look to check back.

      With AQ we can look at raising turn and possibly betting river as well.
