      Hero checks, LP bets $28.00, Hero???

      Tank, Tank, Tank... What do I do here?
      I can obviously only beet a bluff on the river... Should I just have shipped the flop and gone for almost 300BB? Don't know if I like that option either. In a 4bet pot of course, but this was only a 3bet pot, and not a very large 3bet either. He can still call any pocket pair/suited connector profitably pre with these stacks and position.
      I think this hand is another example of how I play much worse OOP than IP. I can see that clearly from my position stats, BU is +0.37 BB/Hand while EP1 is -0.26 BB/Hand.

      Problem is that also 77/88 beat you on the river and I can´t see any hand that he is overbetting there worse for value, so it should be fold
      If river was not 3,7 or 8 I´d valuebet myself half pot instead of c/f to overbet
      3-betting flop likely isn´t the best play since he would not shove there for value worse hands

      I actually put him on something like 76s semibluffing or a smaller overpair 66-JJ testing where it stands on the flop and giving up after he checked back turn. I believe he would check back or bet small for value with JJ, checking back TT-99. 66-88 however, I would expect a big bet from, as well as 76s. Ended up puking and folding after using my whole timebank.
