      Dealt to Hero 8:club: 8:heart:

      UTG raises to $1, fold, fold, SB calls $0.90, Hero calls $0.75

      FLOP ($3) 8:diamond: 7:heart: 3:spade:

      SB checks, Hero checks, UTG bets $3, SB folds, Hero raises to $9, UTG folds


      Board's dry but many dangerous for villain cards may come. What's better: flat flop to give him a chance to improve his hand or push flop and let him to call with hands like 66-JJ, 7x, 8x (there is few of such hands)?

      Think its fine vs a 30bb stack - if he has overpair, he is going broke. If he has AQ (e.g.) he often ch/b turn and river if he doesnt hit so you have to bet out.

      Also, if he has 99-JJ, and overcard comes, you may not win his whole stack.

      There isn't really that many danger cards to you - only like a 1/3rd of time are you going to get a card which completes a straight draw which are the only serious danger cards imo and thats only if SB calls - since I don't expect UTG to have too many straight draw combos in his range.

      Edit: Oh didnt see stack sizes

      Since you don´t afraid anything and he is halfstack I think c/c would be likely the best play to let give him chance to bluff on the turn or if he checks turn, you likely wouldn´t really got his stack anyway.
      People are not really b/f there overpairs but at the same time they don´t really also have overpairs that often, so slowplaying on the flop should be the best play
