      Is it ok to min 5bet? I always do it with premiums, and sometimes try as bluff, but the bluff never works because they always shove or call. So I am not sure if this is ok move to do it just with premiums because I cant balance it? I like min 5 bet beause they get great odds to call, and then I play on all boards the same way as this time, to give them a chance to win the pot with air.

      Should I raise 5bet bigger to give him worse odds? He needs to pay 16BB to win around 150bb, and he hits set once in 8 times, so I guess his call 5bet is profitable? Off course if he sticks to the plan to give up when misses. So I could maybe raise to 44bb to give him bad odds to call?

      I think its fine. I either do it in late positions where open raise sizes are smaller (and so are the 3b/4b sizes) or when the stack depth is more than 100bb.

      Postflop looks good to me.
