      Preflop i think is standard, 3b sizing is ok to isolate fish?

      On the flop i think sizing is maybe slightly too small vs fish, i expect most fish to call flop with any A here/JJ/TT/99. When he raises im not sure what to do, i think he can have some Ax, maybe AQ, but more likely some random bluffs, so i decide to call IP to keep any bluffs in.

      Turn isnt the best card for me, since i nnow lose to AQ, however hands like QJ,KQ,QT that he might of bluff raised now pick up a pair, so i can get value from them.

      So should i now shove turn and hope to get a call, or bet smaller as i did and possibly hope to induce another raise? Or simply shove flop?

      Preflop is perfect against his stack size.

      On the flop, I definitely agree with calling to keep all his spazzes in. On the turn you can even consider checking since you know you are way ahead here or bet even smaller, like 1.50. Stacks go in on river easily if you want to so only reasons to bet are value (any size), induce light raises (small size prob better) and induce tilt because you make him look silly when he has to react to such a small bet.
