I like the flop bet. Pre-flop raise could have been a little higher, but meht I guess its fine. If you're playing a TAGgy game, I'd raise more preflop just to maximize your preflop edge. I'd make my standard raise 4xBB's since for the most part you're going to be way ahead of their range preflop.
Yeah, this is sorta like a WA/WB spot, except that we're usually way ahead, so there's still value in betting. I probably bet $1.75 on the turn.
I like your smaller 70% of pot bet size. It'll keep us from getting stacked when he has an 8, and it might get more calls out of those medium pairs who just don't believe.
