      Villain is 30/25 over 20 hands.

      What do you think about the betsizing (keep into account that the pot is not really accurate, because pokertracker does not take off the rake, so actual pot on the flop was about 20bbs etc).

      Should I make it 11bbs pre-flop? Is it ok to bet 60% pot on the flop?

      Preflop: 11 and 10 bb isn't too different. Not a big deal to me.

      Turn: If he's loose you should bet Turn. He is not folding QJ KJ JT AQ AT a lot in my opinion. If he shoves you can just fold I think, unless you think he shoves stuff like pair+open ender.

      River: Given the starting positions, I think he doens't have KJo too often. Betting here just isolates you vs KQ and better in my opinion. Thus, I think you should check here. QJ JT AQ AT aren't calling a river bet. Check and call to bluff catch vs busted flush draws.

      bet-sizing is fine, though you might consider betting 2-4 bb smaller on the Turn, just to leave more money behind in stacks.
