      Should I bet more than half the pot on river to have more value?

      Hello,

      Raise bigger preflop - $0.3.

      On the flop your bet is good.

      Why do we check the turn? I think we have a very easy value bet here again.

      As played, what's the reason for donking the river? I'd check/fold here since I doubt that there are many worse hands calling.

      Best,
      Plamen
