      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, it really has to do with the opponent. I rarely see myself being far-ahead in this spot where a guy makes pot size bets on flop & turn. Of course his donking doesn't make sense, I mean if he wanted to extract value why ain't he Check/Raising there? For that given reason I might even Call it down but I don't like the ship on river that much, he really has to be big fish to Call you down with a lot worse. :D

      Best Regards.

      I was 99% sure he was behind after the line taken. Pot sized bets are scary, but not betting the river pretty much puts his hand as a bluff / some kind of pair he just wants to see a showdown with.

      Was expecting a fold to the shove, but while I felt sure I was ahead, it was just based on the fact he might call even while behind.

      Well, this even happened. :D Don't know how he could level himself to Call there. :D
