      I never know how to play these hands.
      Should I play them aggro or passive? I think aggro is better to protect because I still have overpair

      you can play that spot for stacks, so c/r flop and b/c turn is fine
      Other option would be bet/shove flop, on that turn card likely bet again and then c/c river
      Either way hard to get away your hand postflop

      On the river, why are we betting? What worse hands are calling? If you think you are ahead, then check/call maybe fine but there is literally no hand that calls flop and turn yet folds this river for 5:1 odds (unless you think he does this with Ace high).

      Otherwise, flop seems fine - though I prefer to cb as normal - that way we build the pot (sometimes villain just checks b/h)

      Main point for me is villains stack size - we dont have nearly as much feQ than for 100bb so on the river (when imo we are now beat), we can never put villain in a difficult spot.

      Kaitz, any thoughts about this?

      Just fishes would call there likely with any pair
      So i think smt like 67, 47, A6 might easily call our river shove. Also he gets quite good odds to go to showdown and we can´t really c/f river if he shoves. So I think shoving ourself is fine play consider his stack size
