      Hello this is again a spot where my villain is unknown i only have 7 hands, i supposed he is a fish (because of his stack, and he limped twice before) that's why i played it like that.I donk on the flop as i always do vs a reg and a fish if i have a decent hand because the reg will be very honest and the fish will call me with a lot of crap ( not in this case though).I supposed he cand have FD Jx Tx maybe OESD with FD a lor of hands there again if he raises the turn i'm out.I don't think this is a bad play.

      Hey Mihninho,

      Preflop call is ok multiway, especially with a fish in the middle.

      Flop - I like your line of donking immediately for value vs any Jx or heart draws.

      Turn - Continue betting for value.

      River - Value bet might be ok. The problem is that a decent amount of villain's range is now busted and may not call. It may be a better option to check or underbet and at least give villain the option of shoving a busted draw. You might lose a little value form a jack this way, but hopefully you will maximise value vs his range.
