      Hi Urmo,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: That small donk looks like the play of a fish so raising for value is fine. Against unknown we can still raise/fold.

      The size you chose is fine because you keep his range wider.

      The turn is no the greatest because 78 complete but he still has some Jx that we beat so betting is fine. Size is ok too.

      On the river we do have another valuebet but I would bet a bit smaller, closer to half pot to make sure we don't isolate ourselves against the stronger part of his range and maybe even AcX calls.
