Hi Band,

I might 4b a bit bigger, the sizing is real small and gives the 3 bettor a pretty good incentive to continue on 150bb's effective while sort of giving away your hand strength. Maybe 56c is a bit better in this regard.

Other than that, without any specific reads or stats I think the play looks fine.
