      Villain is a 18/13/1.3 over 275 hands. He seemed to be a bit passive (even though he's from Sweden!).

      I'm a fish at playing deep stacked. Is pot controlling OK here? I was going to valuebet the turn/river. When he donks the ugly river I really think he's trying to get value when I would otherwise check back. Call or fold?

      I think players are not that crazy that would c/r this board with AQ or air. But they would often c/c with Qx, sometimes even some lower pp-s.
      So I´d bet flop for value, if I get raised I´d likely call once and then decide if I want to call him down, shove over his turn bet or fold.
      betting turn is fine for value, but when he bets himself out on the river, he isn´t really doing that with 88 or Kx, since flushdraw got there, heś likely hand can be Qx which he is now betting for value, I think river is fold or shove.
      I doubt that he´d fold there too many times trips or flush then fold seems a little better option.
