      No stats. I expect that his donk is a small pair/Ax trying to protect on a board they think they are good on, or he has some draw. Figured raising was the best line. We turn the nut barrelling card, can get him to fold pocket pairs, and maybe 9x if we fire the river too.

      We hit gin OTR, pretty standard from there.

      Hi.

      Flop: I think Flop could either be a raise or a call. With the backdoor flush draw I prefer raising because we have a lot more better turn cards (not that I wouldn't barrel Turn without a turned flush draw). We are also slightly deeper and his bet size on the flop is on the smaller side so I think these factors make raising better.

      Turn: Bet 3-3.50 on the Turn. I think you are betting a little too small. We want to put maximum pressure on him, and also we want to have less than a pot size bet on the River if we do hit and want to go for value.

      River: Standard all-in

      Thanks.
