Curious as to bet sizing.

Villian is 30/28 and folded to 3bet 1 out of 3 times after 50 hands. With that little info I perceive villain to be a gambley player and flatting a wide range on the button.

On the flop I had planned to cbet all three streets thinking he has a lot of hands that can call one or two streets but have to bluffcatch/fold to a lot of runouts on river. So I went with 50%/50%/55%. Thinking I can encourage him to put money in when I have strong or nutted hands and give him 3 opportunities to make a mistake when bluffing.

The other option was to make it two streets and size up on flop and jam most turns. While my value hands prefer this I think my bluffs lose fold equity as villain can find calls with his bluff catchers and high equity hands on turn.

Then we get the Ts on the turn. This is a card where I'd like to size up. Villain has a lot of hands that have a lot of equity and will call larger turn bets (Pair/straight draw/flush draw). But because I bet half pot on flop we have awkward SPR. If I size up here I leave very little behind for the river.

So should I go 1/2 pot as I did or jam for 1.6x pot? Or would you do something else? .5 pot flop then 1.6 pot on turn is a weird line lol
