      these damn river donks drive me crazy. every day i tell myself i won't pay them off but each day i find it hard to believe sometimes. like here.. do i seriously believe he either flopped trips/FH or called me with something like 8x and got runner runner?

      also my bet sizing on the flop was a mistake - i planned to bet smaller since it's so dry. possibly one of the reasons why i levelled a bit on the river. tbh i think there are some 99-JJ that might do this or busted FDs. but i dont wanna justify a fishy call :D i think it's really questionable.

      Preflop I'd make it $1-$1.1.

      On the flop I'd bet around $1.4.

      As played on the flop, your turn bet looks fine.

      On the river it sucks very much. Some information here would be quite helpful.
      Overall, we showed a lot of strength both preflop and postflop, so I'm not really sure how much he will bet a worse hand here.
      On the other hand, it's hard for him to have something here, so I'd just call and make a note.
