      Vllain was limp/min raising almost every pot. He had also called shove to river with 2nd pair a few hands earlier. My re raise to his flop donk bet is obviously wrong size for this type of player/situation.What should I have done?
      THe river call is pure TILT.....

      you can raise bigger on that flop, but result would still be the same.
      If he shoves river, you likely have to call, since he could hold there a lot of missed draws or maybe even shoving with Jx for value
      River shove is not terrible, you can fold if you know that he is never shoving with missed draws.
