      Is value shoving spewy here? Or call and evaluate river? His donk look's very weak here like a block bet to a free river card so I decided to value shove. Or could I have raised smaller?

      Hey TommyGecko,

      Preflop/Flop are good.

      I don't hate your turn play here. Villain often has many draws in his range given his bet sizing. Q on the turn is pretty dangerous though and completes some draws + QQ.

      I still think you can get away from this hand by raising smaller and playing raise/fold on turn. It would suck if you blew villain off Qx and draws here with a shove and isolated yourself vs KT,9x,JJ.
