      I'm really not sure whether it was a good idea to call the donkbet on this flop. At the time, I thought "I have pair plus OESD, call". But in reality I think I am in bad shape with bottom pair on a board that smacks his range, and I have a lot of reverse implieds:
      - my 2pair outs give any A or 9 a straight
      - my trip outs might complete a flush or FH
      - even my straight outs are not clean, and they are so obvious that I won't get paid much if I do hit

      So I think I got lucky but should have folded on the flop.

      As played, bet/fold small on river is ok to get value from 2pair type of hands?

      No way am i ever folding flop. People donk flop with so much rubbish, though i have to admit that on this board they are likelier to have something.

      Turn check back is reasonable when i dont think we arw getting more than one street from two pairs.

      On the river i would just half pot.
