      You have to think BU is often folding his steal to 3bet with KJ preflop here.

      I would cbet 6.5-7 on the flop, you have to represent the A or AK and protect your hand.

      Like the turn bet. You can get his stack if he has AQ or any A, and still need to protect I think as well as build value.

      I would also like a little bigger flop bet on the flop, but 5$ is also fine.
      He would likely call with Ax on the turn, not sure if you should check to induce shove with draws or floats. Sometimes it is good line to balance c/f.
      If he checks back then you can still likely shove with almost any river card.
