      Hello banistb,

      Flop: CBetting ain't like a must there, you can as well balance your lines with just Checking and might even see free card or even free showdown.
      Turn: Kinda close, although I guess Bet/Call shouldn't be that wrong, although I would watch out on river and not really get crazy with my Q pair.
      River: I guess I wouldn't even donk here and even if I would then I wouldn't do the bet that big. The problem with donking is that his line on turn was anyways pretty strong and there aren't that many worse hands which Call you anyways, only few combos of Qx type of hands and maybe at the best few smaller PPs, although I don't think that he would raise them on turn. Therefore I might even prefer Check/Call against some kind of bet size.

      Best regards.
