      BB 20/11 over 10-15 hands.

      I think flop/turn are fine. Should i make bigger raises to set up a river shove on blanks?

      My plan was to bet smth. like $20 on the river. Should i bet bigger? When he donked, i think it`s a snap call?

      I think you played it well on F+T, the river might actually be a value shove instead of a call. He's repping 44/J8/88 on the river and 44/88 have to be discounted heavily. I think villain has like JT/QJ/KJ/8:cX more often than he has a hand that has you beat. So I'm jamming river for value.

      It's close though, but one thing is for sure - calling is higher ev than folding.
