      More value to be had by betting slightly bigger flop and shoving turn? My thought for betting less was that I might fold to a raise from MP who was most likely setmining. This however makes no sense on this flop as the only pocket pairs I see him taking this line preflop with would be 99-JJ, so right after the bet, my thought was that I should just go broke here no matter what. Of course I could be wrong and he is cold calling a 3bet with 55 pre for 10% more of effective stacks but then I just have to pay him off. Can't fold TPTK with an SPR of 2:1.

      I was really just trying to make him feel comfortable with AQ here but I think just making a small turn bet in order to set up the river shove to look really small might have made him more comfortable.

      Like your flop bet with basically the nuts
      Since you don´t afraid any river card I´d prefer betting again 9-11$ on the turn and then rest on the river- if you take that line it is very hard him to fold Ax hand and I guess he would not really bluff there if he has 99 or smt

      i would bet bigger on the flop and shove turn...
      if youre shoving any river and not folding any turn....then turn shove is best there

      I def should have bet turn as well, makes it more comfortable for villain. I'm not really afraid of any river card since i have A :spade: . Q or J would be ugly but I would be commited anyway and make it more comfortable for me if I had bet the turn smallish.
