      if you raise his complete, do it 4 BB, since he got 2:1 to call and if you hit TP on a drawheavyboard you go broke for sure

      Not the normal 5BB?
      I'm not sure if I would go broke when Villain makes a potsized donkbet on the flop here. Folding probably is a lot cheaper in most cases :)

      On NL25 3BB bets work just fine for me, specially because I steal very loose, and I would hardly imagine higher FE with additional BB than I already have. Villains really fold a lot even with 2:1 odds.

      The other thing is I think potsized bet is pretty standard on a drawy board and I don't think it should represent anything special here, so I think TP should be just fine.

      Totally agree with 3BB raise in "SB open completes" situation. The reasons are obvious. On micro limits players do it fairly often, so I believe we can get more value by stealing smaller, but with wider range. If you raise 5BB, you are committing yourself, so your range should be obviously tighter.
