      I think that there is not much wrong with your shove.

      The problem I have here is betsizing I mean how should it looks cause I am commited anyway so I don't know if I should raise small (around 14$ or sth). The problem will be when he just snap call and turn would be blank. People do that weird stuff.

      BTW Thank for all posts Alan883 ;)

      I guess the simplest way to put it is, if you think he c-bet/folds anything on such a board you should make the raise that looks the scariest to your opponent, if you don't think he c-bet/folds anything (be it because people usually check/give up such board without an overpair or because he's never 3-betting light at all) then you're probably better off just peeling one off to see if you can crack him open.

      By default against an unknown who 3bets you BBvsBU, you can expect him to be full of shit at least part of the time and likely c-bet most boards including this one, so you raising with the intention of going broke is warranted, and it's only a matter of choosing a raise that will make you look the strongest. Think about what people are doing on your site with monsters and (unless it's bad of course) do that.

      Hope it helps.
