      Preflop: What is the point of the 3bet here? Is it for value? Is it as a bluff?

      As played,

      Turn: I think the two barrel is great but you should consider shoving on a ton of rivers. Note that KQs (OESD) and AQ (double gutshot) are probably going to call you on 2 streets and I think sets should be raising the Flop or Turn really often on such a draw heavy run out. This means that you should expect to get a good amount of River fold equity on a blank card like 2.

      About the bet size: I think your Turn bet is a little too large. What you'll notice is that you have slightly less than 50% pot bet left on the River, which reduces the amount of fold equity you can generate with a river shove. I think betting 45-50 cents on the Turn makes more sense and the pot will have 20 cents left on the River and you will have 10 cents more in your stack sizes which means that pot is $1.87 and you would have around $1.20 left to make a ~2/3 pot bet.
