      Hi,


      Your opponent can't have much on this board assuming he isn't a huge preflop nit, and he is very aggressive. Your donkbet only makes sense if you think this will induce some insane multistreet bluff on his part, starting with a flop raise. If he isn't able to do that, then you'll end up getting a lot of money out of 8x and overpairs, which you would have gotten anyway since he would have bet those himself, while blowing off all his air hands, which could have tried to bluff at you.

      At least check the flop to him to get a c-bet and go from there. If he really is very aggressive, then he should be able to fire more than just the flop with a bluff and you likely shouldn't give him a reason to give up with a raise right on the flop. So c/c flop, c/c or c/r turn. By the time you get to the river very few players will actually fire a third time without an overpair or 8x, but he will almost always bet those himself again, so check/shoving is fine. If he was likely to check back the river with those hands, then donking out would make sense.


      Hope it helps.
