      Hello Mopenza,

      Flop: I'd basically just raise the flop and play for stack with my top2 rather than give them great odds for a Call.

      As played
      Turn: While you went for the passive line then it's still pretty close between a raise and not but. Although I guess I'd just raise it for value here, there aren't that many hands which beat us.

      As played if turn was called
      River: His line is actually pretty strong and sometimes I might even prefer folding while I really picked the passive line. But while he really has such a WTS value then I'd as well Call but I would raise raise it earlier while giving him great opportunity to draw. Which is like the case of those donkers.

      Best regards.
