      Button ($12.28)
      Hero (SB) ($13.54)
      BB ($5)
      UTG ($6.96)
      MP ($20.57)
      CO ($10.25)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with J, J
      UTG bets $0.50, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.45, 1 fold

      Flop: ($1.10) 7, 3, 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.90, Hero calls $0.90

      Turn: ($2.90) 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.85, UTG calls $1.85

      River: ($6.60) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $2.90, Hero folds

      Total pot: $6.60 | Rake: $0.30

      Hi, I decided to ch/f the river, because of his 5BB Openraise from UTG, I set him on AK, TT+, maybe I should have played c/c the turn as well instead of floating him. But the King really gave me a bad feeling in this spot. Do you think I'm good enough times to call the river as played?

      Hey Jazzy29,

      I don't see a good reason to donk the turn. In some ways the 5 is an ok card for you - it should (theoretically) slow villain down with some of his overpairs making his continuing range mainly 4x and bluffs. If you want to get the money in, the best line by far is just to call down on this texture.

      However given that villain opened large preflop, I don't think there is anything too terrible about just check/folding turn vs a large bet. The likelihood is you are simply playing vs a fish with AA.
