      Player is open minraising a lot and playing almost every hand so I 3-bet him preflop for value. I'm not folding on the turn with my 2nd pair 1 overcard and NFD. Should I bet smaller to give him the option to shove worse?

      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:heart: , J:diamond:
      4 folds, CO raises to $0.20, BU folds, Hero raises to $0.65, BB folds, CO calls $0.40.

      Flop: ($1.35) J:heart: , 6:heart: , 2:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1, CO calls $1.00.

      Turn: ($3.35) Q:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.6, CO folds.

      Final Pot: $5.95

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Nah, the sizing ain't wrong. It just gives us somewhat good odds when he decides to shove. Nice hand! Although sometimes I prefer to have a better hand like AQ+ but AJ is definitely doable for the given reads.

      Best regards.
