This is a discussion on $10 NLHE 6-max: When every draw misses and the villain donks the river within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; 10NL 6-max zoom on PokerStars. Villain is unknown.
Hero (UTG): $10.90
Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with Q♠ Q♦
Hero raises to
River: ($3.82) 7♦ (2 players)
SB bets $3.04 all in, Hero calls $3.04
What do you think about the way hero played this hand? I decided to bet the turn for thin value and also for protection against draws. When the villain donk shoved the river, I wasn't loving it, but every draw missed and I honestly couldn't tell what he would be taking this line with. The chance of him having 7x seemed so slim. Thoughts?

I play it the same, but I'm crying while making that river call.
I'd be more confident if that K hadn't turned. Then again, I'd be less confident if this was less than a shove.
