      flop bet 2$, board is very drawy
      on the river you can't fold youre fullhouse here since you get to good odds, but actually i'm 99% sure you are beat here.

      On the flop donking is fine I think.
      But I would make it more like 2$. With 1.5$ you barely have any fold equity at all. His preflop raise is pretty tight and he only cold calls so I think he's holding something like AQ/AK I doubt that he has an overpair because he would reraise the flop to protect against the possible flushdraw since it's very likely that you would also donk a flushdraw there.
      Turn check is okay.
      On the river you've got to call his reraise. As I said an overpair is unlikely so we are most likely holding the better hand here

      2,5$ on that flop is better than halfsize bet.
      I´d go and bet again on the turn, since you probably has the best hand
      You have to call river min-raise, since he could also do that with 7.

      Against a TAG donkbetting is good too? I think he could raise AJ-AK and it'd be hard to call with 88, or he could just fold, and he'd just be folding worse hands. With an overpair he wasnt folding no matter what, so it's a bad DB right?

      I really dont get why the DB if its not for value, and if it is, why $2.5 kaitz? His pfr range is tight, and we dont need FE against AJ-AK.

      Agree Tosh.
      DIdn´t notice that hero called pf.
      Standard line would be c/c flop, c/c turn, c/f river.
      But sometimes is good to lead out, since scarecards could come and player don´t re-raise here never with AJ+, since you could go bet/shove line.
      So I don´t mind leading out, but if you are, then make potsize bet.
