      I cbet smaller to get ligher calls, and if someone has descent Ax, I think it will be all in by the river anyway.
      Is shove river overplay, and isolating vs fh?

      I think you are more likely to get very light calls vs a bigger sizing on the flop compared to how many light calls you get vs smaller sizing but then bombing river. It's a flop you are perceived to bluff so you get hands like 66 to snap call flops very often while hands like KQ, KJ are still quite reluctant to call.

      I think it's better to bet bigger and get it all in in 3bets against SB and get in a lot of money vs BB as well if possible, I dislike the small bet sizing here.

      As played, River will not be an isolation agianst FH because you bet small thinking you get lighter calls that sometimes also result in river block bets like now so value raising seems like the best option.
