      NL500 is a game format not many players will play here, but I would play also with at least 100bb and sizing is indeed the most problematic factor here. If you 3bet like $30 and cBet at least half pot you get more value and he wouldn’t call with speculative hands and you protect your hand better against flush draws. As played I would check the turn and her-evaluete the river. I don’t think you get to much value with betting and you don’t get better to fold ether.
