Hi, the villain is unkown.
I called teh flop DB since it was so small. But I didn't see any worst hand donk bettign the turn as well. any thoughts ? Because if I've called the turn I'd have to call the river most of the times.

Hi fp_boss,

"Because if I've called the turn I'd have to call the river most of the times."

I think folding turn is wrong.

I could go two ways here.
1. Call turn and river on no spades, no 5, no T;
2. Raise the turn and fold to a shove
clicking it back and folding to a raise might seem strategic; it's like putting a blocking bet for the river. That way he will continue with his draws and we take over initiative to decide what to do OTR.

This is a strange one, because of villain's mindonk on the flop. Most of the time, he has a draw or one weak pair, such as 6x or 99/55 etc. I think if you're calling the flop to try and hit an ace or king, you have to call the turn. Villain's bet size is larger here, but he can have A6 and not realise it's counterfeited. I'd call the turn and call on blank rivers unless villain bets much more than half pot, as 7x is certainly possible.
As geo points out 5s and Ts are bad river cards because OESDs get there, so I'd fold if one one of those hits. A 6 would be bad too, as it makes a boat. If the river is a red 3 or something blank like that, I think you have to look him up.
