      I think you played it fine, a read on why MP3 didn't c-bet that flop could help you decide if you can just stab at it on the flop in position after he checks, but even an unknown not c-betting there is suspicious these days so checking behind is also cool.

      The turn raise is mandatory and even tho the river donk looks like a valuebet, without better reads you probably have to call it anyway.

      Result-wise it's a huge cooler, but make sure to take note of his play throughout the hand, it'll help you greatly to read that guy in the future.

      Hope it helps.
