Hi Dan,

Our preflop 3b sizing is too small imo, the standard sizing here 100bb deep would be to 2.25 and I think we should go at least to this amount, if not a bit bigger, because we have to play the pot out of position if the villain continues (so charge him a premium for this privilege), and the limited 18 hand read is that he may be loose, so punish him for opening wide and extract more value.

Flop c-bet is good to continue our aggressive lead in the hand and get him to fold misses as well as put pressure on medium pocket pairs, which may not fold to a single bet but will fold often to a double barrel and there are quite a few turn cards we can comfortably barrel, any A, K, Q, J, or heart.

This turn card is not one of them. When you check his bet sizing is small enough that it looks like he's leaving himself room to fold, so it can be a nice spot to sometimes make this move (and you should play your big pairs like this as well sometimes) but it's a play I like to make with reads much more defined than we have here... I want to feel within some reason that this villain will bet half the pot with a hand like 88 and be able to let it go to a check-raise, before trying this type of play.
