      Villain in unknown but his turn bet size tells me he's a fish. So does donking river have merit?. I've discussed this line with strong players before and been told it looks too strong, but IMO many fish will still call me here even though they won't bet a paired board themselves. What do you think?

      Definitely bet bigger on the flop.

      I am fine with shoving river.
      If we were against a good player this might look strong but there's no way a fish would fold Kc/Ac here in my opinion.
