      I thought that a reasonable way to play. Your hand is marginal on the river though the river bet could have been a value bet perhaps or hope you would raise. Flat calling is a fine move

      NH. Only thing I would do differently is raise 3xbet on turn, and that'll be sufficient.

      3bet on turn is not acceptable. It would be 0.90c which is half of the pot. You want to protect your hand there. I would go for value and bet 1.40, 1.50. He is obviously a flushfish. Chasing till the end. Played good. There is nothing else you could do.

      True, perhaps 4xbet was better.

      -Rebuy to 100BB

      Preflop: Fine

      Flop: The board is wet, you should be bet more to protect your hand, I would make a pot size bet.

      Turn: The pot will be 2.55, (0.85 on the flop + 2x0.85) If he donkes here too, I am going to bet anther near pot size bet ~ 2.5$

      River: At this point the pot is big enough to shove the rest of our money (For value of curse... :) )

      On a general Note:

      Usually donkes bets are done by players who try to get a cheap look on the next card cheap.
      They try to draw up cheap - You shouldn't let them draw up cheaply.
      By Raising their bet big, you are forcing them to make a mistake because when they call they do it with out getting the right odds. Poker is all about forcing our oppnanat make a miste
