      Donking the flop against somewhat passive players is doable there to force Ax to put money in if you expect to whiff the check/raise frequently, tho your line is perfectly fine as well.

      On the river he's repping slowplayed Jx, AA, maybe 33. I doubt he's capable of bluff raising such a huge amount after you fired strong for two streets, and these all this range beat you unless he flatted J9 preflop, i wouldn't call either no matter how narrow this range is, you just don't see 17/11 raising weaker hands there imo.

      Hope it helps.
