      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.106 by

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with 8:heart: , 8:diamond:
      UTG2 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, 2 folds, CO calls $0.15, BU folds, SB calls $0.13, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.50) 7:diamond: , 5:diamond: , 2:club: (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.36, 2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.50

      Here I got basically lucky as everyone folded to my bet because I'm not really skillful in this situations, and I think this rarely occurred to me since playing MSS..

      (?)Question is basically how should we treat our "so-called" overpair on this board.. Yes it is an overpair, but barely, since any 9+ card on the turn/river will ruin it and therefore I don't really see a Bet/Raise as a valid play with this hand..
      Is there any rule I missed that goes like this "in MSS an overpair is only starting with TT+" or is this meant to actually be played as an overpair, as long as it is?

      All the best!

      With your betsizing, people are not really fond of peeling with loose overcards so basically his calling range is 7x, flushdraws and/or straightdraws/2pairs

      Basically we have to bet again on the Turn just to semibluff because if we check/fold, the bet on the Flop does not make sense

      If we get raised on the Flop since it is 3way, we can safely fold because we are far behind 2pairs & sets. We flip against A:dJ for example

      Board: 7:diamond: 5:diamond: 2:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    47.91%  47.91%   0.00% { 8d8h }
      MP3    52.09%  52.09%   0.00% { AdJd }


      Board: 7:diamond: 5:diamond: 2:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    28.09%  28.09%   0.00% { 8d8h }
      MP3    71.91%  71.91%   0.00% { 77, 55, 22, 75s, AdQd, AdJd, AdTd, Ad9d, Ad8d, 8d6d, Ad2d }

      So we are quite toast with our overpair because I did not include 88-TT hands that might raise as well
