      Hi Festfingre,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I would actually like to raise the flop here to maximize value versus his overpairs and draws. There's no way villain will fold those hands and by calling we run the risk of him slowing down or bad cards coming down that will kill our action.

      So I would prefer a raise on the flop, even if we make it smaller and then fire turn/river.

      As played I would probably just donk that river 1/2 pot to extract some value from certain pairs that can't fold otherwise we run the big risk of him checking back (Afterall both straight and flush got there). And if he has a flush or even some straights he can still raise us.

      BTW, as a side note, when you post a reply and would like a judge to take another look please select the "advise judge to take another look" button.
