Only 2 hands on opponent, but he already looks a bit fishy!

Is my 3 bet size pre ok, or should I go closer to 4x OOP? I am wanting him to call though.

On this dry flop I bet small as I want to keep him in. When he raises I only call with the intention to check call on the turn.

Happy to check for showdown with possible straight and flush draws hitting on river.

Could I have got more value here?

Hi carl,

I think you played this hand fine at all decision points.

3B sizing is ok, personally my standard size there is 2.25 to go, I only make it 2.50 if the villain is peel-happy.

Thanks. Would you 3 bet bigger if OOP and as a bluff e.g. 3 bet in SB vs a BTN steal with A2o?
