      Any reads/stats on the villain here? I'd assume he is a fishier player due to the stack size.

      Because of that I prefer bigger bet on flop and turn.

      As played bet/fold river is fine unless you expect villain to be aggro. Although everything gets there from 45 to flushes.

      I had only 30 hands on him and he had pretty tight preflop stats. Against a fish I will be poting flop and turn ofc :)

      A less than full stack usually tends to be a recreational player. So while he might not be a super loose fish he might play similarly. If he was super tight I would still bet big because his range because very inelastic (he either calls or folds, and sometime raise so bet size doesn't matter).

      good point, makes sense to me. Like if he has a FD he probably wont care about the odds.

      I think b/f is fine on the river, although again against very loose and aggressive player you can also b/c, since he may very easily turn his 88 into bluff and bluffraise on scare card, although that would likely not happen very often.
      You can bet 4$ on the turn or maybe even overbet, but I think 3$ is also fine, considering that you don´t want to make too big bets with your semibluffs
