      ahh why raise turn? I think C/C turn and C/F river to a big bet or C/C to a smaller bet and a blank card. You have top pair weak kicker on a drawy board it can be realy hard to figure out if you are behind or not. However the raise on the turn DID indeed give you a free showdown :)

      I wanted to get value from draws. I would fold to a bet of 1/2 pot or bigger on turn.

      Pretty marginal spot without reads, both calling to wait for a good turn and raising the flop with top pair to get value from all the draws/worse made hands out there are viable lines.

      When you just call and he donks smallish again it's fair to assume he's blockbetting a draw, so i like the idea behind your raise. Be aware tho that he bet the same amount on both flop and turn, so it could just be his way of valuebetting whatever it is he has.

      The river is probably too thin with TPNK even tho he might call against 9x/8x if he's really loose passive, so i don't mind you taking the showdown.

      Hope it helps.
