      Hello,

      Why do we make it 2.5bb preflop?
      After the 3bet I'd make it around $2.3-$2.4.

      In 3bet pots you don't need to make big bets and I usually make it around 33-40% of the pots, since the SPR is small so I'd make it $1.7-$1.8 on the flop.

      Why do we check/call the turn?
      Since we have less than potsize bet we could just shove.
      Another interesting way to play the turn is to bet around $2.5-$2.8 and shove the river since people are relatively incapable of folding made hands against small bets so we could take value out of AQ easier for example.
      As played on the turn, calling river is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen
