      Hey Daisuke3823,

      Given BB is 36/24, I'd probably just fold this preflop.

      Villains fold to flop cbet suggests it won't be profitable. You'd have to follow through on some turns to make it profitable, and I'm not a fan of barreling with such a hand.

      River raise is fine. Sizing is fine I think also. I'm not convinced increasing sizing will necessarily increase long run value. Yeah, sometimes a Jx may call larger, but sets/2pair become less likely to hero-call, and some Jx's might begin to fold. On some occasions you might make a little more, but in the long run you might actually make less with a larger raise size.
