      Villain is 22/15/2.8

      There is no other way of playing this right?
      Pot is already too big on flop and because of board texture I must cbet. So after his call there is no point in checking behind, pot is too big turn card doesn`t change much and I have to shove? If he had AA or KK it is a cooler and I make a note about his play?

      That sucks. If you view sb as competitive player, you are very often beat there. You cold save some money by cbetting less on flop (maybe 5$), and cbetting supersmall on turn (same 5$)trying to check it down on river. It depens heavily on villain since fish-tag might coldcall a 3bet oop with TT-QQ as well as with AA&KK. If villain is really good in your opinion, try to keep the pot as small as possible.

      you can bet smaller on the flop to 5-6$ but generally yes, pot is so big that you can´t fold your hand, so I like your turn shove
