      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.96 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 8:spade: , 7:spade:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0,40, 2 folds, BB calls $0,30.

      Flop: ($0,85) 8:diamond: , 7:heart: , 2:club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0,65, BB raises to $1,90, Hero calls $1,25.

      Turn: ($4,65) 4:diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2,5, BB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $4,65

      Once again, unusual hand for me. His raise on flop makes me think he is on overpair or set, so should I 3bet or call?
      I don't really know what to do if he bets turn, but I would probably shove it, since he checked, I decided not to bet big, but still enough for easy all-in on river.

      Hello Oly0909,

      Since we block a lot sets then I don't think that he is having there set that often there, therefore to keep him bluffing I'd consider just Calling and let him continue his bluffs on turn. Otherwise I am betting myself as you did but a bit bigger, ~$3.

      Best regards.
