      Looks good to me.

      What is calling on the river? Probably only the A and 2p might raise. So how much would an A call? 16-18 looks like a good amount

      i thought sizing was too big (better like 50% pot), because what can he really have OTR? sets might raise flop or turn? so OTR he has o a lot of Ax.

      on the other hand betting really big (like 80% pot) polarizes my range more between nuts and busted draws. since he mostly has bluff catchers OTR after all, betting really big might be good too?
