      I donk T to get some value from PP and FD.

      On R I go for bigger value from 88+. His r really confused me...he's raising good Kx on the T to protect from FD. He might go for vbet r on this R with Kx since FD missed and to get value from my PP. I can't fold this so it was easy call for me.

      Hey Y,

      If you do take the check/call/donk turn line, you should lead bigger. Most pairs would vbet again anyway or fold to a river bet so you get one bet only from them anyway. That means leading doesn't help you that much but it makes him fold bluffs. I think you should check/raise flop some of the time with your hand. You defend against a minraise more than against 2.5x or 3bb so you can have a wider Kx range to represent and also more bluffs that try to make him fold air.

      If you don't go for flop check/raise I think you can check/raise the turn. If he has air, he is unlikely to bet river and unless he has Kx against which you get money in on the turn anyway, he will most often check the river for showdown.

      T donk could also be an induce, looking as a block bet. But I'm not that sure he barrels most of his range (he does have 89 cbet and 0 T barrel). Usually my line is c/r T but against this opp I thought donking T would bring me more (some) value.

      How much would you donk on this T?

      If you do lead, I'd bet like 1.75, so quite big relative to the pot.

      Although you don't have that many hands, given the huge F vs T cbet gap, I'd probably just raise the flop in this specific case. You can't rep much less so if he likes to bluffcatch, A high or better qualifies.
