      Hero (BTN): $10 (100 bb)
      SB: $10 (100 bb)
      BB: $18.74 (187.4 bb)
      UTG: $22.86 (228.6 bb)
      MP: $17.82 (178.2 bb)
      CO: $25.62 (256.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A A
      UTG raises to $0.30, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.10, 2 folds, UTG calls $0.80

      Flop: ($2.35) 8 6 4 (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $1.50, UTG calls $1.50

      Turn: ($5.35) Q (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $2.70, UTG calls $2.70

      River: ($10.75) Q (2 players)
      UTG bets $17.56 and is all-in, Hero calls $4.70 and is all-in

      Villain is a 21/20 reg. no postflop reads.

      Turn is a tough spot. If i bet many lower overpairs will fold, most floats will fold. Maybe there is not much value so should play WA/WB and pot control by checking behind. I'm, not sure though.

      As played, river can we expect him to donk worse?

      Hey Tommygecko,

      Preflop fine.

      Flop value bet is good.

      Checking back turn to induce river bluff or to go for thin value is fine. You don't necessarily miss value from a hand like JJ because you will likely get one street anyway which you can get on the river.

      As played river donk is very strong and you can very likely find a fold, expecting to see AQ a lot.
