      - not really, but you should get value from your overpair
      If you have c/f a lot I´d prefer c/r turn to 1.3$ and then putting him all-in on any river. 40/14 would very often call you down with any showdown value once you have shown weakness on the turn and then suddenly c/r him oop

      Hello Pilks7,

      I don't like Check/Raising the turn at all vs unknown and rather passive opponent. Just doesn't make sense. We are isolating us against better hands. Rather Bet/Fold it as you did while there might be still hands which may pay you, something like A or whatsoever. Nice hand!

      Best regards.

      Thanks for the discussion in lines, interesting to know some conflicting viewpoints on the hand. As it is only NL2 though I don't think having c/f alot would mean anything to this villain.

      Thanks guys
