      I wanted to get max value from 88-TT, QQ-AA that are in his range and also I considered that this guy is never raising such hands AI for value here.
      Obviously I only see this guy raising AI here with a J and to assume that he is raise bluffing AI here with clubs is overthinking because he cannot expect a reg at these limits to bet fold a hand like mine here so when he shoves he is not expecting any fold equity like ever.

      Btw I think that I'm going to miss tons of value if I am not betting to extract some value from his pair type hands. Check/calling to induce a bluff is not that great because I don't think we can expect him to have many clubs in his range because the board paired on the turn.

      I bet so small on the turn because I wanted him to not fold any pairs in his range.

      Now I realised that it's a simple c/f in this spot because from a combinatorics point of view:
      QJ,KJ,AJ make up 3*8 = 24 combos + JTs = 26 combos
      77-TT = 18 combos and prolly because he never 3 betted in 150 hands we cant put QQ in there so ==> 24 combos.

      so if I bet I am not getting called by a worse hand not even in this optimistic case >50% time.

      Because guy looks more passivish + the board paired on the turn so I don't see many fd's in his range I think he is not betting enough worse hands, if any on the river, so I am confident in a c/f as the best play atm.

      I'd bet turn bigger and to that river I'd just c/f , nothing much we can do really unless you have a good history of the villain.

      I woudl not b/f river once he has potsize left, so I would either shove myself thinking he would call me down with his medium pp-s or c/c letting him bluff with his busted draws.
      Also you can bet more on the turn to 7$ and then shove river. This way you get maximum value from worse hands and if he is good enough to slowplay on the turn then good for him
