      This is my weakest spot. I have lost moste money on overpairs.
      Maybe I should play more straitforward on Flop.
      When he just called reraise, I was calling river anyhow, so I pushed.

      hi arky - on the flop why did you check? i think you should just bet/fold. if he raises you on such a flop then he isn't doing it with any draw, so what made hands? a pair of 5 or 4 aren't likely given the preflop play, and even then just a pair of T are probably not going to raise. which means he is only doing that with an overpair or a set. so i think the best line would be bet/fold to raise. if he calls, i think i would bet/fold the turn. if he calls turn, just check/fold river. no point in checking such a dry flop after 3betting pre! also with the check/raise on the turn you are just turning your hand into a bluff and isolating yourself against pretty much just sets and overpairs that crush you. also ask what is he calling you down with on such a board.

      Thank you. I gues most of your arguments I knew deep down. I just needed to "hear" it.

      Hello arky,

      Just Bet the flop and ship the turn. No need to give him free cards. :)

      Best Regards.
