      I flop a set and am happy with bet sizing on the flop but think my turn bet is too large. Am I right in thinking I should be giving villain better odds to call with draws here??

      Don't be too happy with flop bet-size. It's a draw heavy board and that villain limp-calls, so he might have FD's in range, as well as some GSSD's that he won't give up.

      Rather bet flop 1,5 or so.

      Preflop I like your sizing.

      I would rather bet bigger on the flop - around $1.5 in order to have less than pot size bet left on the turn.

      As played, just shove the turn against his donk.
      Making it $3.5 makes no sense since if he's going to call this he's going to call a shove.

      Thanks guys,

      Yes looking back the flop size was very wrong and not my usual sizing tbh.

      Turn shove also makes sense.
