      Donk on flop could be anything, so I decide to raise to blast off minor pairs and possibly draws.

      On the turn I thought xe wouldn't have folded at this point to another raise, as xe didn't show any willingness to fold, so I take my odds and call.

      On the river xyr check seems rather weak, as xe clearly allows me to easily check back, so I bet, hoping for value from AJ, AT, JT, sets...
      But maybe I bet too much, not leaving me room for an easy fold?

      Hey AtrociousNightmare,

      Flop raise is fine vs such a small donk.

      SB's turn line looks really strong imo, usually has a flush when he donks into flop aggressor with this sizing.

      You don't have direct pot-odds to call. You could consider making a call based on implieds, but I don't think they will be great in this spot.

      1) Villain could have the A-high flush and you get stacked on heart river
      2) Villain could have a baby flush and fold on heart river.
      3) Your A, 9, outs are not necessarily good and come with a lot of reverse implieds.

      As played I think your river bet is too ambitious. I'd bet a lot smaller.

      You are right about the odds, so I should just fold turn?

      And can you give me an example of a small appropriate river bet in this case?

      Yeah, just fold turn.

      $3.80 maybe. You are targeting any 1 or 2 pairs he somehow has left in his range while avoiding isolating yourself vs his value range.
