      PF: 3x raise with QQs
      Flop: Donked into, thought of raising but I'm either way ahead/way behind so didn't want to inflate the pot with 2 more streets to go.
      Turn: Still a WAWB situation, at this point I raised for 2 reasons.
      1) To get a free showdown in case he has an Ace
      2) To protect against him drawing to a diamond flush.
      River: See no value in betting even as FD is completed

      Is my line okay? I could call Turn and re-evaluate River. Which is better?
