      I think here, being deep, my flop reraise would have been better around $4? Then could had an easy allin by the river by betting near pot.

      As played, I decided to show a little weakness and maybe get value from an overpair or induce a raise, bet half pot the river with the intent of calling any raise.

      When there are 4 bets put into the pot (3bet preflop, bet, bet, bet post or opened preflop, raise on the flop, bet turn, bet river) you should be able to have the last bet a shove unless you are 150bb+ deep. Here you are a bit less than that so I think you indeed have to raise bigger flop, bomb turn and shove river.

      I don't like your river idea. Your opponent ALWAYS has showdown value. He is 99% calling or folding, 1% raising. You simply cannot induce when your opponent is in call or fold mode. Your incorrect sizing (incorrect imo anyway) on the flop makes it hard to play river. Given small flop sizing you should probably make it smaller on the turn as well. Then you have good SPR for river and river is a bet/fold. He calls QJ, he calls KK, AA. He only raises JJ and QQ. 22 is not in his range and 55 will probably get it in before river.

      Even just 140bb stacks change how you play, not just 200+ so even at 140bb deep a set can be a bet/fold.
