      Are my bet sizings okay?
      I bet the flop for protection and to get money into the pot. Should I have checked to the PF aggressor? I also think my donk bet was too small. The board is pretty disconnected, but there are two clubs...
      Was my river bet too big?

      I don't like the flop lead at all. Just checkraise and try to play for stacks as soon as possible. By leading you give him a chance to pot control all streets by calling down.

      When you take this line, I don't see any other option for you. No reason to turn your hand into a bluff catcher on the river by checking.
