Well, if you set yourself up better for a jam on the river- then yes. However, by not raising the turn- you are faced with the decision of what you should bet and if you would have built the pot it would be a no brainer of whether to jam. In addition, a raise would have maybe disguised your flush more. I find that raising the turn as a semi bluff disguises the semi bluff more than the semibluff on the flop typically. And you can always raise a small amount on the turn giving him a hard price to fold to.
What kinds of boards DO you like donk betting on?
lower, somewhat less coordinated ones where it's a little easier to get him to fold right away or be confident in which cards we could be more inclined to keep bluffing. On this board, he's going to be able to call with a lot of holdings and we might be tempted to bluff some of the cards that hit him
What turn cards would you bet on the right?
might continue betting A, T, or maybe a lower card like 2-5 to make him fold his straight draws he peeled. The T, similar to 7, hits his straight draws by giving a pair some, but at least we have extra equity and probably dont get raised on that turn too terribly often. The 7 on the other hand, we have less equity, its another card he might continue peeling on a fair amount. If we bet that turn and he calls we probably need to shove the river.
