      I dont 3bet bigger bcause i dont wana go AI whit this hand. I want to play a pt whit iniciative.

      Player 8 hands 38/38.

      I think that have a lot of broawwas, Ax or SPP in her range that could b/f.
      I like the c/p, its balanced whit strong hands.
      If I bet the flop, i dont know who turn I can bet agane. And If he pay me I have a lot of outs.

      I think 2.5X should be your standard size, given positions and also your stack size. While I don't play MSS myself, I do use this size when I play vs other MSSers.

      I think the c/push could be fine. I probably bet the Flop if I had KhQx or KcQc since I can push a bunch of turns.

      For this hand, I think all 3 options are acceptable
      -Bet half pot

      I think he should be 4betting TT/99 a lot preflop, maybe even pocketpairs (at 40bbs their set-mining implied odds fall and playability with pocketpairs postflop is bad so it's usually better to play for stacks) so I am putting him on mostly broadways.

      So actually I think your line is my favourite option. NH.

      Preflop is good.

      I like the check/shove on the flop too.
      It gives him the chance to bet his whole air and we can probably make fold Ax and get called by worse - QJ/KJ and even if we get called here we are likely to have decent equity with our two overcards and gutshot.
