      You have probably the best hand on turn, so bet for value and protection. On river check and call a little bet.

      Hi,


      Check/calling is probably the worst option without a very good read on him that he'll try and represent the flush with his air, he will usually only bet better hands if you check to him.

      Check/folding isn't bad if you opponent is very tight but it's generally too weak a line for an overpair in that spot.

      The default against an unknown is to bet/fold that turn for value against everything that he calls the flop with that didn't make a flush, and that includes often 1 card flush redraws.


      Make a note on that guy that he bet 77 with a 7-high redraw there, as most people wouldn't.


      Hope it helps.
