      reraise to $10-$12

      you said it, it is draw heavy and he will call your raise with HUGE range.

      Here's the actual hand..

      I shoved after his raise on the flop thinking that he's probably either got TT+ or AJ/AQ and hit TPTK or maybe even an AK for gutshot, and with his stats it's almost free money in the pot and I wouldn't be surprised if he called, which he does

      surprise surprise!!

      that reraise was good but if you made it 10-12 you could reassess the turn card and save yourself a ton of money.

      then again i like it because they money went in when you were ahead.

      i am a little concerned that you have silver status and play NL25BSS, are you following BRM?

      shoving seems kind of bad, since ususally I don´t expect him to call with pair+oesd, but if player is bad and call shove with these hands, then shove is fine.
      I´d also prefer raising to 12$ giving villain chance to call or shove with worse hands
