    Hi Nitish,

    Welcome to the forums!

    What I would do differently is try to build the pot. Slow playing usually just costs you money which it certainly did here (I think it cost you money vs. the opponents ranges, obviously if you get coolered monster vs. monster all the money tends to go in on the river despite slow playing). Actions that build the pot are betting and raising... actions that control it and keep it small are checking and calling. In this case when we get donked into for a small bet amount, I would raise immediately generally, since the small bet often gets raised light anyway, we'll tend to not get a lot of credit for this raise.

    As for getting all in, it's perfect. Not getting all in simply leaves way too much value on the table. There's only 1 hand that beats us (1 combo), and his range to play for stacks here includes 88 (3 combos), 44 (3 combos), and a whole host of 3's, some full and some not. We are an overwhelming favorite to still have the best hand when the money goes in.
