      Hey pokerboy198229,

      Preflop call is fine.

      On the flop you should donk-bet sets multiway unless the flop is dry. This board is possibly just safe enough to check, but any drawier and you should just bet.

      On the turn I would just bet for value and hope someone has a flush-draw or weak PP, or 2x. It's your last chance to extract value from any draws.

      River overbet for value is fine, nice hand.
