      Hi Achilles,

      Why should your cbet be any larger? 1/2 pot on this dry board is perfectly fine.

      As played why not raise the turn smaller to give him a chance to make a mistake? We really don't want him folding and a ck/shove increases our FE here a lot. A raise to $24 or so may induce him to spew either by calling light or shoving light.

      He doesn`t look like a fish, so I thought that small raise will look stronger, because it`s really hard for me to ch/min r turn in 3b pot as a bluff with 18$ left behind?

      And one more question. If we have TT-JJ in his position, how do we play the turn vs aggresive regular?

      Either ck/raise would show strength but with a minraise you usually give them another chance to spew. Maybe he has a weird gutshot that he doesn't want to fold for the odds anymore or just a pair that would get stubborn.

      If you put yourself in his shoes how would you play vs a min raise or shove? Ideally you should play the same given the info.

      Against aggro guy we can ck/call turn/river with TT/JJ. We want to play their game. Cbet flop and then look like we are weak/give up. Alternatively, if they are aggro and calling station (let's say bet/calling AQ there) we can ck/shove same as AA/KK/sets.
