      Tricky board.
      My thinking on flop was, due to his UTG range (maybe!), either set, overpair 99-QQ, maybe 55, a few strong draws or T9s straights.

      I don't know what he donks with tho, and since I don't see him folding anything on that range, I decide to call down and fold to an oversized bet or to a bad card.

      On turn I break my plan (damn!) and on his check my brain went automatically "check turn! weeeaak!" but obviously in this case it wouldn't mean much and my bet doesn't achieve much.

      On river I realize I'm probably beat vs that donk.

      Bet bigger on the turn for value against pairs overpair plus draw.

      River you are not beat so often. I think a hand like AJ could play that way and you also best QQ KK TT

      I'll call the river.

      My problem to bet big for value on turn (please ignore anyway how I played turn, it was awful) is that the flop is baaaaaaaad and if I bet big there on turn with that size, am I not committed?

      You bet big because you want value from hands like TJ JJ TT 99.

      If he checks raises what hands could he do it with? 99 TT JJ QQ? Or 66 77 88? I'll think there is a lot of overpair that will check call. Check raise I not so sure but I think it's not a big mistake to go in with AA. Sometimes they do overplay their overpair
