      Hey Lupara,

      Hand looks well played.

      You can still get called by worse with a raise on the flop.

      Turn donk into flop-raiser is usually pretty strong and it's likely SB has a 7.

      Considering he donk bets 83% and his AF is 4.9...is it safe to assume that we won't be bluffing or playing his draws aggressively?

      Is this specifically his turn donk-bet? Or is it his overall donk-bet stat?

      Usually a turn-donk into a flop-raiser is a very strong line, but it might not always be the case if your stats suggest otherwise.

      83% is his flop db, I pulled out more stats for a better indication F/T/R Agg% - 46/52/40, over all agg% 46%.

      The majority of players check all their draws on the turn here and either check/call, check/fold. Usually a bluff is not considered because it's likely you have something after you've raised flop, so a bluff would be suicidal in a lot of cases.

      If you've specifically seen villain donk turn light after calling a flop-raise then you can continue with 99 of course. Raising would be fine - if villain doesn't hold a 7x it is unlikely he holds a strong made hand or he would have 3bet the flop.

      However if you haven't seen him take this line before I wouldn't assume he's donking turn a light just because he donks flop a lot.
