      So I slow played the hand till the river and then just donk shove to make it look like a bluff and that I really want him to fold. Stupid idea and should better have went for a value bet?

      Hello Krishjanis,

      Your play will never look like a bluff. :D He will never hero-call it. Rather keep it easy and simple being OOP and bet it and build up the pot. Your bet sizes don't even have to be very good. Make it near so that the guy could fine a Call with a draw or either way maybe even raise with some hand as a bluff.

      Best Regards.
