      SB: 303.12 BB (VPIP: 42.11, PFR: 10.53, 3Bet Preflop: 10.00, Hands: 20)

      MP: 103 BB (VPIP: 18.42, PFR: 13.64, 3Bet Preflop: 6.18, Hands: 426)
      Hero (CO): 122.64 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:diamond: A:spade:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, BTN raises to 7 BB, fold, fold, Hero raises to 15 BB, BTN calls 8 BB

      Flop: (31.5 BB, 2 players) Q:heart: 3:diamond: 2:diamond:
      Hero bets 12 BB, BTN calls 12 BB

      Turn: (55.5 BB, 2 players) 7:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 28 BB, Hero calls 28 BB

      River: (111.5 BB, 2 players) T:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 63.38 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 63.38 BB

      Is my 4b size ok? No reads on him. I cbet this size usually on flop, and check turn when I want to give up and when I want to bluff induce with value hands.
      Is turn and river ok?

      Preflop: Being OOP and being up against a really small 3b size of 7bb, I think your 4b size should be slightly larger, maybe 17-18BB.

      Turn: I don't agree with the Turn check, unless you think that villain is floating the flop with a really wide range (which requires reads, which you don't have).

      Just bet Turn and shove River. Don't let him pot control with AQ/KQ
