      As ussual i called a flop for set minning and got overpair. I noticed that likes to raise so i called his contibet thinking that he might have an Ax hand.
      But on the river he makes a pot sized bet, should i folded imeadeatly ? Now as i reevualating my hand i think that there's hardly any hand that i would have beat .
      Btw is it ok to think of 88-TT cards as an overpair if you call with them ? Because i had simmilar situations and lost to a bigger pocket pair like jacks.

      Hello Jaccuzzi,

      You don't beat much on turn anymore. I don't really see any reason why I should continue there. Any Ax which is very likely even in his range beats us. We only beat bluff and that's all. Rather fold it on turn.

      Best regards.
