      You can 3bet preflop. You are most often ahead against his range from CO.

      I don't like donking here. It's better to play c/r with top two.

      Make it around 80-90 on the flop if you are going to donk. Other streets are ok by me.

      Sounds good. Depending on the player I could see myself taking alternate bet/shove turn (players capable of going broke there with QJ/combodraws and/or somewhat likely to have raised the flop with sets/big Ax) or bet/call turn donk river lines (players not very likely to have draws on the turn or that will player QJ very cautiously by folding to a turn shove and checking the river back). But without reads it's fine to play it like you did to ensure you see a showdown.


      Hope it helps.
