      Villain-unknown.He is donking out it rather big on the flop/turn so I decide not to raise him but to let him give his stack away by the river.Would raising flop/turn be the better option?Now I see no value in raising river-is there a point in raising it after the line I took?

      I would prefer raising turn just to get all the money all-in on the river and consider his bet size it also seems that you should be ahead his flop and turn leading range so raising to 10$ and then shove basically almost any river should be a little better option than just calling turn and shoving river.
      Since backdoor flush got there I´d just call him down

      Now I see no value in raising river-is there a point in raising it after the line I took?
      - if you put him mostly on Ax hands then river shove is fine, but he also has to b/c then smt like AT/AJ
