its not a philosophy, and dont be results orientated, you got all the chips in the middle because he got coolered (and didnt fold when he should have)
we 3bet because the unknown has a relatively tight range and wont fold to 3bets nearly enough, plus he will 4bet/get it in with worse (like JJ+ AK/AQ)
we bet flop because all of his range that is a weaker pair (22-1010) that didnt get it in when we 3bet now call on this flop (yes 88 and 66 now beat us but we can comfortably bet/fold flop.) aswell as KQ AQ AJ A10 QJ etc, (cause its 2nl)
we bet turn because lots of his tard floats are now going to call us, and the only hand we lose to is KQ really at this point, so again we can comfortably bet/fold
we bet river because we now only lose to J10 and a ton of weaker Ax and Kx 2pair etc all call our shove.
we dont need to think outside the box for no reason. we need to apply logic to our decision process
