[color=red]Hero bets \$x?

PF: Standard call for set value.

F: Only strong draw on the board is 78, 34, so I figure it's OK for me to slowplay.

T: Unfortunately, no one bets so I decide I better start building a pot now and I'm faced with a raise. The only hand I'm behind against is TT since it is unlikely for either opponent to play QQ this way. The board is offering a lot of draws so I decide it best to 3-bet. I'd put the BB on {QT, AQo, 55} and the BU on {AQo or some type of broadway draw}.

R: I have \$2.34 remaining in my stack, BB has more than me and BU has around \$1 while the pot is \$4. Not sure whether I should I just shove the rest in or try to get less, say \$1.25, because I look so strong with my line on the previous street.

Questions:
How big should I have made the 3-bet on the turn?
How big should I value bet on river?
