      Preflop- I would 3bet to around 18-20c as we are in position and hold a relatively strong hand. Calling isn't a mistake either though.

      Flop- I like the reraise here and the sizing as we want to protect our over pair from draws and over cards.

      Turn- We are in a tough spot here. I think we could always check here and try to induce a bluff on the river but bet/fold isn't a mistake either because his call on the flop often means he is drawing.

      On the river, we don't beat much that will still call us so the check behind is a good option.

      agree 3-betting pf and raising flop.
      I would prefer betting turn, since I want to get value out of 67, 77, 99, maybe worse pp-s and protect against some Ax hands, that he may easily b/c flop.
      River check is fine, since he would likely not call you down too many worse hands

      best regards,
