      Button ($7.02)
      SB ($12.33)
      BB ($10)
      UTG ($14.86)
      Hero (MP) ($12.71)
      CO ($20.58)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with A, 10
      1 fold, Hero bets $0.30, 2 folds, SB calls $0.25, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.70) Q, J, 3 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.50, SB calls $0.50

      Turn: ($1.70) K (2 players)
      SB bets $0.90, Hero raises to $3.30, SB raises to $11.53 (All-In), Hero calls $8.23

      River: ($24.76) 4 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Total pot: $24.76 | Rake: $1.11

      Villain was unknown.
      Why should he donk the turn here with a flush? Either he has the nutflush and wants me to have odds for my hopefully K-flush or he has a hand like 2p or a straight as well.
      Do you agree with the way I think and with the line i've chosen?

      Hi Jazzy,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think your cbet is definitely fine on this flop but on that turn I think that stacking off is a bit of an overplay.

      I don't think that many people donk/shove 2p/sets and even straights there unless they have some flush redraw as well.

      He can definitely donk the flush there to avoid us checking back that turn or to try to induce something from us.

      So unless we have any reason to believe he donk/3-bets flush draws or worse hands we should fold the turn.

      But since he donks very small, don't you think we should call the turn and maybe call up to 60% potsize on a riverblank as well?

      Sorry, I didn't mean fold the turn to his donk.

      But rather fold after the raise.

      I think 2p/sets/nfd just bet/call there and not bet/shove.
