      Hello,

      I would raise the flop here against his donk.

      As played on the flop, calling the turn is fine.

      On the river I prefer checking back. I can hardly see worse hands calling us here on this quite heavy board.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Raise\AI vs a bunch of pair+draw hands, right? But won't people fold everything except flush and monster draws like KxJ:diamond: ? Or will they continue with pair+draw type hands also?

      I not really think that the guy is folding a hand like AQ here, if he decided to donk it.

      If he decides to go for a 3bet though, I would get very cautious and play according to the pot odds, since if the guy plays donk/3bet on this board he is usually having quite a good hand, especially when you are deep.
