      Hello YourDoom,

      Preflop: Against such a small stack (MP3 stack), I like your 3bet line but for example if he had a bigger stack, I might even consider just Calling and playing it postflop.
      Flop: Standard CBet, size is fine.
      Turn: Check/Shove doesn't really make sense here, since he ain't that aggressive, I'd more often just bet my own to get Called by weaker PPs, might even bet bigger to make easier for us to shove the river but it doesn't matter that much, I'd bet $2. And actually if we even get raised, we will have hard time folding it, since it will give us pretty good odds and therefore I might even go broke.
      River: It's an easy bet for value and maximum one, put him all-in. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
