I don't think there was anything you could have done different...

Nasty they both came alone for the ride but I wouldn't fold to any bet OTF so I like your call.

I do think this board could hit their ranges pretty good so it's deffo going to be a sweat if they call (if they don't already dominate you)

lol at BB shoving flop!

I just sized it to 3.4$ preflop so you are fine with 3.3$, won't make too much difference as we are probably stacking off when we have already invested 33% of our stack preflop.

I've read somewhere in a book that if you want to double your winrate, double your bet size. I think the point the author was trying to make is to err on bigger sizing with your value hands rather than betting smaller. so I guess making it 4$ won't hurt!

My initial thought was about $3.50, but like Geo says, but this is such a rare spot that I wouldn't spend too much time trying to figure out what is optimal.

Just remember that the fishier and more calling station your opponents are, the bigger you should bet.
