      You can bet also a little smaller to 3$ on the flop
      since you´re really deep then not really sure how often he´d call huge c/rai on the turn even with QJ, KJ and he should fold there almost always middle pp-s and maybe even QQ
      So I think if you like to c/r then 20$ is better and then you can call shove or shove river yourself
      This case you end up all-in anyway, but you also give him chance to b/c with worse hands than boat.
