      villain playing 31/12 over 46 hands
      2.2 AF

      not 100% sure what line to take vs player
      on turn i feel like villain is not donk/folding, so calling seems best?

      Cool, now I can answer. :D

      I think given your equity you should still take the raise line on the turn and commit yourself. You still have folding equity against hands like 79, 89, you have huge equity against Tx so you cannot be wrong with raising here imo.

      That said, calling is definitely +EV but when people take the donk/call/donk line I think you should take the opportunity to raise and see their reaction to play better against such a line in the future. The current EV might be the same but for the future it matters a lot imo.
