      Villain's check raise didnt make much sense here. I put him on smaller overpocket or mid pocket. I imagined I was losing only two 77 in this range, but why would he raise here then (a tricky play in these levels)? So, I floated his raise and wanted to bet it with any higher than 9 card (I think that villain would have 3bet me preflop with TT+).

      Hello faronel,

      If he is such a maniac with Check/Raise then I wouldn't CB in first place here but just Check it behind and avoid getting raised since it's very likely that such an opponent will understand that such a board didn't hit your range.

      Such hero-calls puts you just into ugly spot and mainly would depend on the opponent, of course it's possible to play it this way but it's going to be hard for us to Call on the turn if he bets again.

      Best Regards.
