      Hello lukezo,

      Preflop: Depending on the CO stealing range you can act accordingly. Maybe even sometimes 3bet here, although Calling ain't wrong.
      Flop: As we get CBet pretty big it's pretty marginal actually. I'd continue more cautiously.
      Turn: But I guess I'd likely donk it out here to protect from overcards and maybe even get value from some draws. He will anyways Check behind those holdings but while we still might get value from those and basically find out where we stand as well.

      As played
      River: Not much to do when you did play that passively. I'd as well Call it, although the problem is that he is representing a very strong hand with his near pot size bet.

      Best regards.
