      I prefer donking the flop. Donking the river is an easy call (if you look from sb point of view).

      Betting the river would win you most of the time but not this time.

      I would donk the flop, check the turn and bet the river.

      Hello YourDoom,

      Preflop: I'd just fold it here, Q4o is way too bad to fight against that kind of opponent on such limits.

      As played
      Flop: As he decides to Check, he often might even give it up right here, so therefore you could even start betting here.

      As played when flop was Checked behind
      Turn: The 2nd 9 on here makes just unlikely for you to have a hand, therefore I don't really like the bluff here, likely just Check behind and hope Q high to be good enough or hit on river.
      River: Check behind, don't really like to play against fish on such a board. They might even find a Call with just A high or something similar, also could easily have a small pair.

      Best regards.
