      he is regg.
      Is it ok slowplay? Planned to raise river. I thought he turns his hand into bluff because of Jx, or would value bet Jx or overpair, so might call my river shove. I think doesnt make sense to donk river?

      Hey GingerKid,

      Pretty decent flop to slowplay multiway. The drawier the texture the more inclined you should be to donk-bet in these spots.

      Usually fine to check-raise the turn when the J puts a few draws out there. Flatting is ok but can be difficult to get paid on river this way.

      Best river line depends purely on villain. If villain is strong/polarised c/r is good while if weaker/merged donk-bet can be good to avoid villain checking back. If unsure I'd go for c/r because your range looks weaker after you check.
