      Hi Vorpal,

      Preflop: I don't like the call preflop. Our hand is mediocre at best and we play OOP with no initiative.

      Flop: I don't mind the donk here to isolate the fish.

      Turn: Check/calling is fine to let him bluff

      River: So what better hands actually folds to our river bet? You play versus a fish and I see our bet more a thin valuebet than anything else. If we indeed bluffed nothing better folds.
