      Hello DrDunne,

      The problem with such flops is that it's a multiway pot and as well this kind of board hardly hits set ranges and even 2pairs possible. I don't think that he would play with some overpair like this while even having an opponent behind us.

      Therefore I'd just Bet/Fold in this case and even the bet doesn't have to be pot size, ~$0,20 should be enough.

      Best regards.

      It's actually pretty much the same. At some spots I would definitely even consider Bet/Calling if I see the opponent being able to raise even with TP/draw type of hands and reevaluate it on further streets.
