      Should I be 3 betting pre? He had an attempt to steal of 36%, and hes not the tightest.

      Hows my C-bet size? Could be behind to small pocket pairs, low chance he has a 9, I think my hand is ahead most of the time.

      Full house on turn, when he calls I think I am perhaps splitting now, but I still think small pocket pair.

      I put him all in on the river, considered checking for free showdown, but thought I'd bet as I'd call his shove anyway. Maybe check/call is better to extract value from pocket pairs I beat?

      I'd bet about $2.1 on the flop, i don't think it changes is calling range in any way but it sets up closer to a potsize bet on the turn, which will come in handy when we decide to jam it for whatever reason.

      As played it depends how i think he views that "scarecard" turn, since i think he should mostly have some pocket pair at that point. If i think he's capable of putting me on air and making a turn call I'd just shove for about pot, it looks bluffier to 26/21 in my opinion. Otherwise i don't mind going with a bet/check/bet line in that spot, since i doubt a pocket pair is calling a committing turn bet, but it might call a river bet.

      I'm also shoving the river, neither of us can fold at that point but he can check behind with worse, which is bad.

      Hope it helps.
