      Preflop: Hero is SB with T T
      UTG raises to $0.70, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.60, BB folds

      Flop: ($1.60) K 3 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.80, Hero calls $0.80

      Turn: ($3.20) T (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks

      River: ($3.20) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $1.60, Hero calls $1.60

      Anon table, no reads.

      PRE: Dont really like the idea of 3betting an UTG range with TT oop. feel kinda lost if he flats.

      Turn: thought about donking here as his cbet was only 1/2 pot on the flop?

      RIVER: pretty ugly card. only hands we are scared of in his range are AQ and JJ. dont want to bet/fold, so prefer x/c?

      Hi.

      On the river, i don't think the river card is that ugly but it is also a card which improves our range a lot so I don't expect him to hero-call too often when we can easily have QJ QT and maybe some AQs floats with backdoor draws.

      I would prefer check/calling the River.

      Nice hand.

      I prefer a check/raise on the Turn and I think donking turn is a play which is quite hard to balance - You almost always have something strong here like T9/TT/KT/QJ.

      Unless you have some pure air floats and will sometimes bluff these coordinating turns as a bluff. Maybe you float the Flop with something like AdJd or AcQc and then donk the Turn? I think donking turn is just generally something strong here most of the time and most people don't balance their ranges here, thus it is easy to exploit such a play by just folding the Turn with air or even with some not so strong showdown value like QQ or K2 here.
