      Villain was on the looser passive side with 28/20/31 with a 44% FT3B 147 sample, and we are 180bb deep or so

      My first question here is about the flop cbet size, is it to big and will it just lead me to be pot committed with a TPTK type hand?

      My second question is, OTT I now have a monster, at first glance we say we should protect here vs draws, but on this turn card a draw has completed, now shouldn't my plan change to pot control and check back to get to river cheaper, especially since we are still 150 bb deep?

      flop bet is way too big, it indicates that you have top pair or a strong draw and are never bluffing. You should also try to set stacks up properly.

      Turn is an absolutely clear bet, and you should fire river too. If he jams the turn then i think you can bet/fold. People rarely bluff here, at most you beat 8s9s or ATs or A7s, but you lose to QJs, TT, 77
