      Bigger cbet on the flop? And easy fold on the river, right?

      IMO Bigger bet on flop. then push AI on turn.
      since he would only have 20 BB left if u bet bigger on flop and pot bet on turn.

      And u would get odds for calling on river.

      Depending the opponents and table image i would light 3 bet on pre flop since you got position.

      Calling is fine preflop, UTG will come along and you can play your PP for set value with a fish.

      You were not the preflop aggressor, so it's not a c-bet, but yes, bet bigger on the flop for value, like 6,5$.

      On the turn depending on the player you either wanna shove, or just b/c like 2/3 so you don't scare him off, knowing that you're not folding on the river no matter what after that.

      As played against an unknown, i still think i'm calling, he could still have a busted flush draw, a lower set or random 2 pairs, and you're almost getting 3:1.

      Yes bet bigger on flop for protection/value and shove turn and wouldn't have such decision on river, I would likely Call there, he can still shove some 2pair+ hands and you are getting pretty good odds.

      Best regards,
