      Hi johny8984!

      This is very similar situation to the other hand you have posted. In both situation you had TPTK or big overpair in 3-bet pot and you are 100BB deep. You cannot find fold and you are happy to get your money in.

      Preflop: You can raise even bit larger as you are out of position to CO, so you can even go for $0.26-0.3.

      Flop: Your bet sizing is ok, as you comfortably put SB all-in on turn (question is not if, but how you put him all-in). Because FD is on board, you can bet slightly more (e.g. $0.5) and build pot bit bigger on flop and give villain better odds to call on turn ($1.3 to $1.8 POT).
