      I donked on the river since i didn't wanted him to check behind and loose value on one street, but i just called the flop cuz i didn't wanted to chase off bluffs, I'm puzzled now because I had changed my course of action. Any sudgestions on how to act in such situations?

      Hey Liub4in,

      I think you made the correct flop decision here on this texture.

      The normal thing to do is allow opponent to keep initiative on the turn and check. Donking looks pretty strong after you've just called a raise OOP. Villain can bet a lot wider than he can call. If the turn card makes you uncomfortable you can check-raise, but aside from the flush-draw the 8 is pretty safe so check-calling would be fine with the intention of donking or check-raising river.
