      I am confused after his donk on flop.
      Flop is draw heavy, but AJ is to weak to shove I guess?
      I bet, and get a second pair on turn, so now I can shove.

      Should I value bet river? To be honest I was afriad of c/r. IF I would bet, and he raise me can I call on river?

      How should I play on turn if I did'nt get improve my hand?

      Check on the river is fine imo. You might loose some value against AK & AQ but since you don't wanna get check/raised with the flush out there.

      I would raise flop and not turn. The reason is that the J changes nothing in the entire hand if villain bet flop with something he has you crushed with anyway (set)... you goto keep that in mind.

      Hence you raise the flop.. since villain is probably not a good player he would shove a set now. If he doesn't he probably has an A and hopefully not a draw.

      Turn you can make a standard bet now.

      I think you played it fine considering it's still 3-way on the flop when you have to make an almost committing decision if you raise.

      I agree tho that the turn card doesn't change all that much except you beat AQ/AK, but you are heads-up now and when he blockbets into you, maybe with some kind of flush draw, trying to get it in is fine.

      River is thin but i'd probably just shove it in, i'd except a flush to just donk out and a set to shove the turn so that leaves us with some Ax and maybe some sets. You don't have to tho since that player could very well try to "slowplay" something on you, checking back is fine.

      Hope it helps.
