      SB: $20 (100 bb)
      BB: $20 (100 bb)
      UTG+1: $29.86 (149.3 bb)
      UTG+2: $26.05 (130.3 bb)
      MP1: $17.13 (85.6 bb)
      Hero (MP2): $20 (100 bb)
      MP3: $29.97 (149.9 bb)
      CO: $20 (100 bb)
      BTN: $13.69 (68.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A A
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.60, Hero raises to $1.80, 5 folds, MP1 calls $1.20

      Flop: ($3.90) 8 9 5 (2 players)
      MP1 bets $1, Hero raises to $3.45, MP1 calls $2.45

      Turn: ($10.80) 8 (2 players)
      MP1 bets $0.40, Hero raises to $8.40, MP1 raises to $11.88, Hero calls $3.48

      River: ($34.56) K (2 players)

      Villain is fishy. I am guessing my flop raise should have been larger.
      The question I have is what should I do if villain is unknown and the turn is a scarecard, like Qs? Let's say he bets between 1/2 and 3/4 pot. Do I still get it in w/ my overpair?
      If he check raises me I am commited anyway so I guess no question there.

      Hello M1rCea,

      He can easily have a lot worse overpairs there, so I am not considering to get away here. I would just raise bigger on flop to make it ready to ship turn.

      Best Regards.
