      I don't like the line. PF is good, flop why raise? If he has KK QQ or AKs he'll likely reraise u PF and u'll both get it in there, if he has JJ or TT or some other 1 pair hand he'll just fold, if he has a set he'll call and try to commit u on another street.
      As played for me the turn was ideal to get him to bluff u there. So after ur flop raise u almost have to bet turn now and hope he reraises or at least calls. River of course he makes a min bet and u have to raise.

      This isn't really the best board to raise the villain. OK u do it to mix up play now and then but with such raises u really put urself on the firing line for sets. Call flop, call turn, try valuebet river or just check behind if u have reads he bets his strong made hands.

      Becasue of opponent stack size, raise on the flop is fine.
      I think I´d bet smt small, like 4$ on the turn to shove river.
