      Is it ok to 3bet with smaller size, because I want him to enter 3bet pot light where he start being very aggresive with bluff raises.

      Turn fold? The board is not really scary and his stats tell he raises too often so I call.

      No, with deep stacks you should raise at least the same as your standard sizing imo. You can make it smaller vs him than vs others, but always account what you actually want to do with your whole range: 3bet smaller to get him to call and play loads IP with a wide range? Make him 4bet or fold?

      You say he spews postflop so in that case you should go as big as he finds small enough to enter the pot if it makes sense. Too small and he correctly enters the pot often, which you don't want.

      Postflop, I don't get what are you trying to represent with those small sizings in a deep stack situation. Your standard should be bigger imo. This is only and ONLY read based that he views it weak and you can induce. As a standard sizing this should not work if you 3bet often then barrel postflop.

      Keep in mind his postflop sizing and pot management here. He turned an overpair without any blockers into a bluff and left potsize river shove do give you worst odds. If you see him do differently with the value hand, you have a clear tell.

      @Turn fold: You can't fold when you say you 3bet pre smaller to let him bluff post on such a board. You said you expect him to spew it in so hang on for the ride now! :) Same goes for postflop sizings btw...
