      i didn't 3bet preflop because it will play quite well postflop and BB seems weak with his stack size so he might come along too (do i even want this? lol there will be more value when i hit if bb does call pre...)

      on the flop i don't really think it hits him much but i expect a cbet all the time so i just check/call with my backdoor FD and 6 overcard outs which are also probably clean.

      on the turn i decided to donk out because i don't think he can be too strong on this board but i can barrel any :club: , any Q, any J and any K or A probably as well. so thats what i did on the river.

      is my line okay or is it fishy?

      Calling preflop is quite good.

      Overall, I prefer folding the flop against unknown.
      I think that this board is rather not being cbet quite frequently so I think without good information we should just fold it here.

      As played, I don't mind donking the turn, but bet bigger - like $1.1.

      I would probably check/fold here on the river. Flush got there so I think it's quite a big part from his range and I think I'd just check/fold here.
