      Is my line okay here leading up to the river?

      I felt I had to lay down the river, I knew this might be a big bluffing opp
      oportunity to a half decent opponent, but didn't feel it was worth the risk with TPTK

      Flop - against fishes it's good to raise for value here but I would raise bigger since we have a strong hand.

      Turn - nothing much changed I would still bet big for value

      River - usually Donking out like that is a sign of strength. CCould be a flush could be 2p either way we are beat. I think fold is the best choice here.
