      Similar spot to the other one where we are discussing whether to call turn & river with a low overpair. This time, there is an overcard, but we are in position. I feel like those spots play out quite the same. Would you call one more time? What if there were more draws out, would he be more likely to bet light on the turn?

      I think you´re getting barreled there quite often so I would at least call twice and on blank rivers consider calling down aggressive players. He would not valuebet 3 times JJ/TT or QJ/QT, so you can be quite sure his range is QK+ or air. Also sometimes turning your hand into bluff and raising turn should sometimes be ok. Draws would not shove there and would likely either fold or call 7.6$ raise and also overpairs would likely just b/c. So making small raise you can get your free showdown and also protecting against draws and air

      best regards,
