    Make it at least 700 pre, and lead flop.

    If you check you should check call.

    given u have 20bb I three bet a little smaller than 700 just in case people catch on that you're committed, always lead flop/jam turn

    Never min 3bet OOP with any hand.

    Bet sizing with the best hand is pretty simple really, price out draws. In the range of [max they will call] and [minimum where it is correct for them to call], price towards the max.

    Anytime you give someone a correct call you have made a mistake.

    Dont min3bet aces as a rule it gives away your hand and prices people in to suck out

    As played shove flop over his bet unlucky gg if he sucked out

    I'd probably lead ~35% pot on the flop to induce bluffshoves/valueshoves from worse hands

    Yes I agree allena, was constructive advise. Even better, all the comments came from guys that I railed regularly at the time and still do when I can. Have learnt heaps from all of them.

    Just a note but, some times there will be advise that seems like just comes from a smart arse. In situations like this, research the commenter first and if they are a player of note, then review what they have said and you might be surprised that they actually were supplying constructive advise.

    There are others that are just trolls of course. Ignore them.
