I disagree.. .without knowing the stack sizes we can't really say for sure (as far as preflop goes.... ie. say we're on ~16-20bb stack, this might be a good spot to LRRAI here in SB w 22... 'it depends').
I also disagree with postflop 'looking ok'. First off, without knowing stack sizes we can't really say for sure, along with our prior history of BvB play vs. opponent (& btw... whether or not we've had 22 300x so far in the tournament it really doesn't matter & has no bearing on the hand unless villain's seen what we've shown down, etc. etc.).
Again though without knowing the stack sizes (of us & villain vs. the size of the blinds) I can't say for sure what might be the optimal play here in this spot (also without reads on villain) but I will ask "Why are we donking into the raiser here?" I know we have flopped a set but isn't it likely that villain is cbetting here when we check to the raiser?
I'd consider leading into the raiser here after Limp/calling pre if we assume that villain thinks we're a huge fish (which he might because we did limp/call pre BvB) & then followed up by donking out... ) in hopes of them re-raising us on the flop.
I think to just keep it simple we're likely better off to just check/call the flop (depending upon the board) & then maybe lead turn (again depending on) as it'll look somewhat fishy & may help us to get paid off.
You really need to give a few more specifics on the hand in order to give the best response to it. Even if it is just a $3 mtt..... some players are 'thinking'.. some are not (player reads are important). Also it's crucial to give stack size info.
