      Villain is 27/14 over 23 hands.

      Should I bet any bigger here on any streets? Maybe raise bigger pre to get more value as well?

      On the river I decided to bet small to possibly let him spazz out with some of his weaker holdings. I think by the river he will have a range petty similar to AQ+/JJ, maybe a random AJs. I would expect any Ax to call a river shove and to shove over my small bet. But with JJ he might fold to a shove but might call a small bet, or even spazz out like he did here.

      Is this fine, or would it be better to bet larger on the river? Or bet larger on the flop and turn and then just shove the river?

      I think we can bet turn bigger to set up a shove on the river. He's probably only calling river with Ax. I don't expect him to spew the river after we bet into him 3 streets so I rather go for value instead.
