i donk bet a lot in certain situations successfully and has shown a lot of profits doing it. It's not my favorite thing in the world but i do implement that strategy on a variety of boards in many situations and it is something i do as an adjustment. I got this strategy that i used from playing HU a lot pre Black Friday and have never abandoned it.

I'm sorta new at this my self but i don't think a bet check bet line with KQ,KJ,KT is very good if that is your value range including the other hands and i'm curious what do you do with your weak aces then? Do you check those on the flop? If you bet them on the flop do you check turn and bet river? i think the hands of the weaker 2P you rivered that you check the turn with maybe you should still check the river to protect your weak aces because when you check weak aces on turn then if you bet 2P on river then you leave weak aces with nothing but a hero call and often you will be beat. I also have a problem with the AJ+ VB river why would you bet under neath his capped range with AJ when he can have AQ? I'm am just throwing out suggestions and questioning you to spark discussion so don't take anything i say offensive. I don't think AJ will hero call you to much and i think you get medium to small pocket pairs to fold by the turn. I also think 1/2 pot betting river is way to weak of a bet you lose to much value on your value hands and i think your bluffs get called to often. Keep in mind the more you fire barrels the stronger his value range becomes. Are we assuming our opponent is GTO. I prefer to bet 3/4 pot honestly to make his indifference tougher to call and work from there. Keep in mind i am no expert in GTO but i started to do a bit of work off the tables on this my self. I come to the conclusion that i feel GTO will cost you money in the long run and i prefer to play exploitable. That doesn't mean i won't try to help and figure it out my self because that is just what i like to do. GL and hope to hear from you soon.
ps. forgive me for sloppy writing, i suck at writing hopefully you under stand what i meant and said.

I do agree with the scientist post to an extant. I also have a theory that we all contradict our selves all the time and if you never did. You wouldn't be growing as a person. What you think today may be different tomorrow. If it always stayed the same then you are most likely a robot. Just my 2 cents

I think he is meaning that science is not an exact science. You will eventually have to change as you grow as a poker player. There for what you come up with today as you get better it can change with your new thought process.
