      I didnt have time to cbet, because action on other table.

      On turn I cbet :) because I think he bluffed flop, and have outs for trips and 2 pair.
      Is my check raise ok on river, given that he is fish, and doesnt want to give up his Kx?
      Maybe it was too large raise? I would have to fold to push.

      In these cases you could just min-raise it. If a fish bets so small on the river, they don't have a real hand, but usually they are stupid enough to check what you have if you just minr it :)

      Hey mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I really don't like our donk on the turn. Why do we think he bluffed flop? All we know is that he is a fish and I doubt he folds better hands to your donk there. So in my book it's just building up a pot that we have little hope in.

      The river play is fine. You are giving him a chance to bet all Kx+ and missed draws.
