      No, your bet is usually fine there compared to the pot size.

      I will go through the whole hand though because I think your sizings and actions aren't the best.

      Preflop, you get a terrible price to call for setmining and your hand plays badly against a 3betting range even IP, not to mention OOP. I think that's quite an obvious fold.

      On the flop, because of your position and hand it's tough to get value. Given SPR (stack/pot ratio) I don't like raising big at all. It's a legit spot to minraise. It clearly puts stacks in play and anything more is extra that doesn't buy you anything imo. A minraise actually allows for more spew that a bigger raise.

      An alternative is to lead here. This flop should connect reasonably well with his 3betting range. He will call down KTs, AJ, AQ for 1-2 streets at least. If he has KQ+ he probably calls for stacks. However when you check/raise he can get away from some of those. That said, you get some money from bluffs on the flop. My main concern/worry here is to stack AK and AA 100% of the time!

      Your preflop call is bad imo and if you also fail to stack those hands on this flop your EV is horrible overall. :(
