      Hello,

      Preflop I'd make it $1.1.

      Why we skip the cbet on the flop?
      I prefer to play bet/bet/bet here.
      As played, I like shoving here.

      Best,

      I assumed at least one of them hand an overpair, even both of them.

      no way that the flop was getting checked through. so i decided to check / raise to build the pot quicker and ship turn.

      If i were to cbet, what sizing would you pick here? could we go ahead and pot it?

      I think that betting is better than check raise because of those two things:
      - we risk to give them a free card
      - check/raising looks way stronger than betting.

      So, if we go for a bet here, I'd make it around $2-$2.3 in order to have less than pot size bet on the turn.
