      With that draw heavy board bet definetly close to pot so opponent would make -EV move. On river I mibht just donk/fold 1/3 of pot.

      Hello germany5590,

      Preflop: 3bet it bigger here, especially if you are so deep. That's the idea of 3betting to get value from them and force to make mistakes.
      Postflop: Bet the flop & turn bigger and otherwise Check/Fold the river, too many draws got there. Even if you think you are ahead then it's better Bet/Fold it instead the river.

      Best Regards.
