      Hello kaulaz,

      Preflop: From UTG I'd raise 4bb as long we have a strong range from it.
      Postflop: Bet the flop yourself then Check/Call it like that. We still need to protect our hand! But otherwise doesn't make sense to donk the river like that, rather Check/Raise it cause if he has a hand he is going to Bet.

      Best Regards.

      I try to keep my raises exactly the same (3BB) in cash games so it would be hard to find patterns/reads in my play for the opponents.

      After the flop decided to slow play, in order to get some money and it seemed to be working out well, when he was betting on the flop and turn. The river bet - maybe should have check raised, just was sure i will go all in if he reraises so did not want him checking
