      Just 3bet flop for very clean value.. you have a set in Blind vs Blind, nobody is folding Ax there too soon, just go for max value and 3bet a normal size.

      On the turn, why do you raise so small?

      On the river why don't you value shove? Do you only expect him to have a flush? If so you should check/fold.. if you think he has enough worse hands than a flush you should value bet your set. I think any 2pair calls but the way you got to the river is quite silly imo and sizing wise as well. Don't get fancy OOP with a value hand, just play it strong, people call too much.
