      Hello clandestineAl,

      Preflop: Well, being OOP I might even prefer to fold the hand. While the opponent/opponent behind us doesn't even have a full stack. :)

      As played
      Postflop: Rather donk right on flop with such a strong hand and gain some fold equity than Check/Call it. Otherwise I'd just Check the river, I don't that there is going to bet much value from a lot worse anyways while a lot of 2pair combos are possible/sets/straights. Not much worse is going to pay you.

      Best regards.
