      Can I ask the reason behind the check-call on turn and river?
      I think after raising the donk bet on the flop, betting the turn would be a given no matter what card came off.

      The only thing really beating you is something like QJ, 76, and J7. QJ maybe, But I don't see the other hands in villians range.

      Like SheepMoose says... bet the turn. You took initiative on the flop, so bet.

      Turning the nuts and then checking is a donk play. In addition to giving away a free river card when you don't wanna see a 7 or a J hit the board it's also bad for the value you wanna get out of the hand. If villain checks the turn behind you can't get the money in anymore on the river which is just a play waste.

      don´t think you should afraid straight there, so I´d b/shove turn for value
