      I actually think you can bet slightly bigger and then probably shove against a raise. Usually I want to get in money ASAP here so I use betsizing to do that. 6 on the flop shouldn't be too big, then if he even minraises you have a shove and he will sort of be commited with draws or pair + draw. This sizing also allows for a 1.5x pot overbet on turn if the card calls for it such as this heart (more action killers against JT, KQ type hands).

      Hey Cleo,

      Preflop: looks fine but we can also 3-bet larger versus a fish like him. All of our 3-bets are going to be for value vs him.

      Flop: Why did we min raise 3-bet there? I'd make it at least $20 and he still has room to shove and think he has fold equity. Plus we leave less money on the turn and he can call wider.
