      Villain is very aggressive so I thought I will just call down him with a pair but turn and river came not so good for calling down. Don't know if river donk bet is good because dunno if he folds enough

      Hey Ezeras,

      Calling preflop with this hand is not going to be profitable if your goal is to make hands. By flatting this hand pre-flop you are committed to taking good bluff spots post-flop if they show up.

      I think your river line is fine here. If there is ever a good spot to bluff this is probably it. You rep a huge amount of strength. If villain is the type to never fold anything, that is another issue entirely, but from what I can see this hand looks good.

      Another option might be to turn hand into a bluff on the turn (check-raise) - I'm not a fan of calling down 2-streets with an underpair (unless you had intention to bluff river).
