      no decent info on villain, just looks like he might be a reg with his stack size. flop was obv a failed checkraise... maybe we can argue for leading?

      river felt sick and i'm nowhere near to the nuts so i just folded. doubt there are too many bluffs here regardless of odds.

      Hey DrDunne,

      I would nearly always donk the flop here with a set on this texture. You ensure it doesn't get checked round, and it looks slightly weaker than a multi-way check-raise in most cases.

      Turn donk is fine, and the best play.

      River sizing probably works better a little smaller perhaps $2 to extract value from the weaker hands in his range. Even if he doesn't hold a flush, the A makes it harder for villain to call with his non-flush hands, so your bet sizing should represent this.

      Vs raise it's a pretty easy fold, but you could have lost less imo.
