      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has Q:spade: A:heart:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, BB calls 2 BB

      Flop: (6.5 BB, 2 players) 2:diamond: 6:diamond: A:diamond:
      BB bets 3 BB, Hero raises to 11.4 BB, BB calls 8.4 BB

      Turn: (29.3 BB, 2 players) 3:heart:
      BB checks, Hero bets 20.9 BB, BB calls 20.9 BB

      River: (71.1 BB, 2 players) Q:heart:
      BB checks, Hero bets 50.7 BB, fold

      Hero wins 67.6 BB


      106 hands, VPiP 38, PFR 26, donk flop 2/5.

      Should I raise flop? He might donk only 50% with fd, or weaker Ax, or set. I planned to raise/fold flop, bet /fold turn bet/call river on blank.

      Is my river bet too large? I was almost all in.

      Hey mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I would always raise here as well for value and we should size our bets such that we have less than a PSB for river (maximize value versus draws/pairs).

      As played you might as well shove the river (once we bet that much).
