      Hi. SB had donkbet 67 (3) during this hand. Despite small sample I assume he might donk a bit light so I'm raising here for value from draws like QT, A :spade: x :spade: , JT, JQ, AJ, KT, K9 maybe.

      My question is whether to check back this turn and call river if it's less than 1/2 pot or bet turn for thin value and free showdown. Thanks

      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop I don't really mind donking. Quite a lot of draws here to take value from.
      What would you do if he shoves though?

      Turn is really bad and I think checking back here is fine.
      I can hardly see worse hands calling us here.

      As played, I would rather fold here on the river despite the small sizing.
      I don't think he's going to value bet Kx here, and I don't think he bluffs busted draws on the river with this sizing.

      My flop line is raise/fold, because I expect him to shove 2pair+ only.

      If a blank came on T, would be betting alright?

      Folding river makes sense.

      If a blank hits the turn I would bet for sure. We can still take value from draws and worse Kx.
