      Hi.

      Flop and turn are standard. I would not bluff raise the river. Its tough to rep anything. Would u raise ak here?

      I would call with pairs below qx though. Feels like he is on a busted draw cos he probably checks qx again on the King river.

      I don't think he had busted draws because he ran of time and folded (it would be a insta fold if busted draw) I believe he had queens. Yeah, I think I would raise with a Kx.

      ok, i suppose if you are raising KX here you can raise sometimes as a bluff. But question is whether raising KX here is overplay or not. I'm not too sure how often the average person donks the River with QX and calls a raise.

      Do you think he can have a better hand than Qx often enough? His line and betting size looks weak.

      Would be nice if you could say what range he could donk in your opinion

      IMO i think it's a busted draw most of the time.

      As mentioned previously, a set should go for a river CR, while a Queen should go for a c/c. That means that he should be weighted towards bluffs here.

      However, I'm not completely ruling out QX from his range. And IMO you don't rep a King well because I think most players are flatting KX here vs the river donkbet, which is why I don't like raising the River too much. Of course if he's weak tight then the raise is fine.
