      Hi CleoClaudiu,

      Preflop: looks fine versus a loose steal (we can also 3-bet here)

      Flop: ck/calling is fine to allow him to possibly bet the turn to make us fold a non Kx hand.

      Turn/River: Why are we not raising here with our hand? And on the river why do we donk only 1/2 pot?

      What are our reasons behind these plays?

      Yes I know, probably the best play was to check/raise on the turn, and then maybe shove on the river? Or maybe half pot on the river would be better.

      I think overbet shoving that river would be an overkill I think unless we have any reason to believe villain loves his 1p type hands. Because our raise is for value versus OESDs/draws, Kx and possibly weaker 2p like K6s, K5s, 65s.

      However I can see us raising turn to about $12 and then bet about 2/3 on the river.
