      Preflop and flop are fine, depending on how good/aggressive MP3 can be when you don't c-bet there might be the option of starting with a check. When in doubt a c-bet is fine.

      Turn would be somewhat gross against people capable of floating that A-high flop with air hands, probably forcing you into check/calling. At nl5 tho, I just don't think you'll get people to peel the 3-bet and the flop c-bet with hands that need to bluff on that turn card, so I wouldn't level myself into calling there against anybody who seems remotely decent. Especially when he makes it so small, most players will still bet 1/2 pot or more when bluffing to make sure you don't peel that light.

      Hope it helps.
