      Villain is a 68/32/6,0AF/23 hands. I decided the raise the turn to get a free showdown. Should I have just called the 2bb?

      Hey Adsefghijk,

      Preflop open is fine.

      Flop raise might be ok. Depends on villain and how often he donks. It's not a great texture for extracting value, and hand is a little strong to bluff with.

      I think the general idea of raising turn vs this sizing is good when you have a pair, but I don't like it on J turn which hits some of villains flop calling range. 9T, J9, TJ, KJ etc. I'd probably just flat in this case and evaluate on river.

      As played pretty easy river fold.
