    Hi Nocco,

    I'm not thinking we can profitably commit post flop with a high spr and a board texture that is fairly bad for AA, so my preference would be to simply flat call his donk bet in position... it keeps the pot under control, allows him to continue to bluff or "value bet" worse hands, and will get our hand which has decent showdown value in a small or medium pot, to showdown in a small or medium pot, without having to face a tough stack decision.

    As played I think the fold on the river is good, a large river bet like this is for value so often. Without reads we don't know if the guy would make a bluff like this, or if he doesn't understand hand values and thinks top pair is this strong, so I would just pass. With reads I might make different decisions at any point in the hand.
