      Your preflop raise should be $1 according to SSS, but that isn't such a big deal now in this hand.
      And I think pushing it on the flop is a good decision with your overpair.

      Interesting things is that he bets potsize.
      So maybe he just hit his hand but is afraid of the draws.
      I'm not sure if that's how you can interpert his bet.

      I don't think he will call preflop with 79, so he didn't hit his straight.
      6T, 8T or 68 also isn't a hand to call this kind of raise preflop.
      So I think he just hits toppair on this flop with TJ-TA
      (I hope the coaches can explain me if my thought are right here?)

      But whatever his hand could be, you got overpair so you should push this I think.

      Nice hand, a 3.5 BB open bet from CO is well played.

      Thanks guys, it's good to hear....

      This is yet another sick situation for me, of which I've seen a LOT at NL25. Can't seem to avoid bizarre beats at this limit.

      Case in point: in this hand villain had 6:club: 9:club: !!
