      When looking at this hand after from villains point of view, it seems obvious that I had a monster. c/c flop, c/r turn, bet strong river… how can I play this better when I don’t have the initiative from preflop…maybe a donk bet flop? I’ve found that situations where I hit monsters without the initiative are much tougher since I don’t want to show too much strength with c/r but I don’t really like donking out either.

      I dont like donking either, I think a check/raise is fine since most opponents dont fold an overpair on that flop. I wouldn't worry much because most players dont fold overpairs, just the good ones.

      cr flop, donk turn, donk river. youre both deepstacked and you want as much value as possible. By just calling that small cbet you dont get enough into the pot and as mentioned they are not good enough to fold tt+ here.
