      Hello GraveGoods,

      Flop: Just CBet the flop with your OESD+overcards while having fold equity even.

      As played
      Turn: Seems to be fine, since he will anyways have hard time Calling with a lot worse and you getting the odds for Call with OESD+overcards.
      River: Nope, I wouldn't Call anymore against his line. Often times such a bet sizing patterns ways everything about his hand. He likely has you beat.

      Best regards.
