      Hi!

      Villain is 11/8/1.7 nit.

      PF I raised with intention on isolating the CO poster.

      Flop is ugly especially cuz he donks there. Here I think his range mainly consist of draws, because he would probably ch/r sets. I decided to call mainly cuz he could have better Kx`s there (AK totally possible cuz his 3b was 2-3%, maybe even KQ cuz of my loose-ish image).

      With calling flop my intention is to call any turn(except A) because I think he is barreling his nut fd`s at least twice. Here is my first question. If I call two streets, and he checks the third, can I stab the river given the fact there are more busted fd`s combos than better Kx`s?
      As played I think I made a mistake here, his check totally turns his cards up which are now exclusively draws. I should have bet for value and protection!

      He checks river and here is my second queston. Can I go for thin value here? Is there any possibility there is JJ and QQ in his range with which he probably is calling a smallish river bet with? Looking at the whole line it seems very resonable two hands in that spot except from the donk on flop.

      Thanks for your help!

      - don´t really see there too much value betting river unless you´re betting to induce shove from missed draws, so I´d rather take my free showdown. He can also c/c river with KQ to induce bluff from missed draws and missed draws would generally not really just c/c with A high

      - he is mostly folding, but yes easy valuebet. He may call there with smt like 88 And I´d also bet turn myself for value
