      Preflop raising is good.

      Not really the best board to cbet here, but if you think he'd fold enough I like cbetting.

      Turn gives us TP so betting is fine and your sizing is good.

      The river is a blank here in my opinion and I think we could bet here and your sizing is fine.
      When he shoves though, what worse hand do you think he could have? I think folding is by far the best option here since I expect to be against better hand most of the times.
