      Hey Daisuke,

      Preflop: looks good

      Flop: Considering it's connected and that BB seems fishy (stack and donK) I'd also raise for value here.

      Turn: The only hands that got there are 6x and we lose our stack versus them anyway. I much more prefer to put him all in here so I maximize value against 9x, TT, 2p, some 8x/7x.

      As played we still beat some 2p and occasional bluffs. We need to be good 22% of the time or so. Thus calling is not terrible but we can avoid outing ourselves in such spots by raising for value/protection on the turn.
