Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Whats the best line and bet sizing here?

I decided to raise the flop because hes not gonna barrel the turn with air or call a turn 3bet with an ace so seen as hes not folding the flop with an ace i 3bet, the trouble is on the turn is my bet sizing to big and i cant check because theres still cards that can beat me.

i'll just call on the flop, since the board is dry. Make him possibly bluff again on the turn or bet again if he has an A.

If the board gets drawy, then I'll 3bet. If blank I'll call again if his bet is half pot or over then bet for value on the river.

Hiya mike

I think calling flop with the intention of raising a bet OTT is fine but raising the flop is also okay given this is blind v blind and we can still get action from Ax, draws, MP it would also balance our flop raising range in those spots if we have flop raise bluffs on dry boards BvB. I think the optimal line depends mostly on our villain type and tendacies. As for bet sizing im sticking with 3x no need to make discounts for our opponents. When they call, I'm betting 1$ OTT.
