      Flop: I noticed you tend to use smaller bet sizes. I used to do that too, back when I was playing lower stakes, but I realized that if you are aggressive and barrel a lot, you should be using larger bet sizes in general.

      A. When you build the pot with the nuts, you win more money
      B. When you bluff someone out of a bigger pot, you win more money

      Of course the converse could be true, but assuming that the better player wins the hand more often, then a larger average pot size would favour him.

      Especially when we have a flush draw here and we don't really care too much about balance, we should just bet 75%+ pot, since we are probably barreling most turns anyway.

      Turn: Easy barrel, I'll bet 85% pot or something like that as well.

      River: Without reads I'll fold the River, I think villain has a good amount of 87/67/77 type of hands in his range. If i had more reads about how aggro this guy is I may call.
