      What do you think about donking flop, rather than c/c?

      You have 3rd pair, which might not be good, by donking you get your opponent fold better hands, maybe even fds, OESDs. Why not to donk imo if opponent is unknown.

      I dont get river shove. maybe check/call to indoce bluff but that he will call with worse than T is also quite hard. I see him calling only maybe with two pairs.

      If he is aggro I definatly prefer c/c flop

      The river bet looks good, although I would bet/fold a little bit smaller. Don't know if there are alot of T's in his range. I still prefer b/f over c/c river.
