      Hey,

      This is quite a typical 3 barrel spot imo. Flop you get floated reasonably often imo, turn you improve equity quite a bit and villain would raise most made hands. This means his river range is weak Qx or worse and you have a) loads of equity on the turn vs that and b) very good FE on the river vs his range. Yes, stacks are a bit shallow but not too shallow. You can bet 3 on the turn and shove river. Betting on the small side also forces him to play his strong hands with a raise instead of slowplaying since he will fear not getting value.
