I think we can call here and look to assess rivers. Villain is still largely, and while it leans me one way and Iíd now at most be in cheap sd mode, I donít think itís quite enough to give up. We need 25% equity, donking ranges are usually weird, and we still get to hit the occasional ace.
I call. Another donk on a nine spade card an Iím out.

Makes sense. If the turn donk was an odd bluff and he checks river, we can check back and win or if the Ace hits, bet and perhaps get a call.
I ended up folding, because of the lack of straight and flush draws and the apparent passivity of the player. I didn't think he would be bluffing often.

Yeah there are certainly branches that go river c c and villain turns over some bizarre creature.
And tbh for the price this is a massive over fold, like some 100nl crusher would roll their eyes. Iím doing the lab and Fee would pull out his hair. But I get it and it likely isnít terrible. This is a K a higher than 50% of the time.

Its a turn decision. The board is so dry that the equities wont change drastically on the river unless you river an ace. Its a turn decision whether you decide to call this hand down or you fold on the turn... That being said most of the times I faced this kind of aggression it was the trips. But its what ever, against a 50/1 retard you never know. I would also predict that he will be shoving all the rivers. I think this might be a good spot to make the exploitative fold.

I think it's a call here, consider his vpip so high, TT,JJ,QQ in his calling range, I will call and make decision at river.

Call turn, eval river. Flop is a great flop to check on a large % w/ bullets since there's really nothing you're worried about on the turn unless you want to get it in against a passive player. He's less than 50bbs deep so that will likely be happening if you bet the flop.
