      I think that given his AF I would be trying to c/r the flop rather than donking. I would be interested in the standard line here, with a vulnerable made hand against the pfa.

      The fact that he folds the paired board on the river indicates something more like AKs, maybe :heart: or :diamond: , than some strong pair that may now look you up. I might bet fold the river, so maybe like $5 instead of potsize. If he comes over the top you are surely beaten.

      Preflop: I am not really sure if it's ok to limp with such hand vs such player. Depends on his ATS.
      Flop: OK
      Turn: OK
      River: Check/Fold

      I will always complete this preflop in a short handed game, for 1:5. The sc is good in this spot, for me anyway.

      And I would always bet/fold the river rather than check/fold.
