      I have been stealing from villain a lot so I thought he just wanted to re-steal. My line on the turn if b/f. Bet size is made so that it looks like I want him to call.

      Preflop: OK.
      Flop: You will need pretty good reads on him but it's good that you are IP. The line is fine to take but very easy to make mistakes and lose money.
      Turn: If you picked this line, I'd bet here more. So he might fold some PP. With such bet you are just making it easy to call. I would bet ~$6.

      Best regards,

      Float iwthour any draw and overcards is imo not the best, better is check behind on the flop or than b/f.
