      I slow played this hand with a few donk type bets even though my full house was with aa on the board. Was this a risky strategy?

      I think that the given limit (NL2) is very wrong place for any kind of a slowplay, since the opponents really like calling in this limit, we have to give them this chance. Here for example we lost value in flop from QT/KT gutshot, flushdraw ( what he has much in his range) etc.
      Don't slowplay, bet and bet big all the streets.
