      Hey! 1st of all: don't limp :evil:

      Post flop: I'd donk bet this board, as I don't expect pfa to be cbetting a whole lot and we need to extract/protect.

      You're asking about a bluff shove: you wanna shove $15 into $2.78? :D That's too big of an overbet IMO and I can garantee you it's not +EV. Besies, what do you want to bluff him off? We're ahead of quite a few hands and trying to bluff someone off TP+ in NL5 would be pretty suicidal :D

      I'd just bet the river again, something like 1/2 pot, as CO has shown a lot of weakness and I doubt he has a better hand than ours.
