      was the betsizing OK ? i think that on the flop I should bet 3.3$ , because i he ch/shoves i will get better pot odds

      Very bad bet sizing. 3bet from blinds is very bad, it has to be at least 3.25x

      Flop betsize is ok, can be bigger.

      Turn betsize is like worse ever. Do a normal continuation betsize and not a potbet.

      Conclusion: Bet smaller turn and fold to raise.

      Why do you 3bet? He only folds 50% to a 3bet, he goes to sd 28% which is a bit on the station side. Think about it, he opens 19% from CO. That looks like 22+, ATs+, A5s, KTs+, QTs+, JTs, T9s, 87s, 76s, A9o+, KTo+, QTo+. He folds only 53%, he continues with 77+, AJs+, KQs, QJs, JTs, AJo+, KQo, your crushed by his range + he doesnt fold super easily post flop.

      As played, the 3bet size pf is fine, I think ragney missread HH, I think is fine to 3bet 3x or slightly more IP. If in the blinds then I preffer 3,5x - 4x.

      I guess the flop cbet is fine ( his fold to cbet stat would be usefull )
      On the turn Id probably just take the freecard, and give up if dont hit. Dont understand why you bet almost pot here. Just bet 5 or 6 and fold to a shove.

      Being ip I think 3-bet is fine, since A2s doesn´t play that well if you just call and then you also have to make some moves
      I think you have to get all-in on the turn, but problem is that there are million draws and pair+draw hands that would shove over your turn bet. So instead of betting 8$ and calling shove I´d overbet shove turn and expect to get folds hands that might get all-in, smt like T9s, QJs and so on
