Donkey call on the river?

Donkey call on the river? I delay cbet this guy and figure if he has a set he would’ve raised a pr preflop in his position. I figure he has a straight or nothing so I hero called him with ace high. Unusual how he played it and surprised at what he showed up with on the river.

    Why the large raise sizing? Isn't 5.5x a bit large for online play? I also wouldn't advocate playing A8o for a raise, even in position. I wouldn't even do this live.

    The 4c doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of things, so I'm not sure that I would bet it. In villian's eyes it actually widens your range a bit to include club draws, giving him the odds to continue.

    If I am in Villian's shoes, I am thinking that your range after the check on the flop and bet on the turn is shaded pretty heavily to a draw/medium PP. I imagine that he's turning his 3 into a bluff on the river as it would be a tough call for you with a hand like 66-99.

    As played, this is a fold. you beat exactly 67 and that is it. You chop with A6-A10, you lose to AJ+

    Pre flop raise size is fine after 2 limpers, I would have cbet flop, check/fold rest of the streets.

    Your hand is too weak to bluff catch. I've been trying to fold bluff catchers that sometimes lose to what your opponents can be bluffing with
