      I think raising Flop is over playing your hand since he can have QQ+ and sets so often.

      I suppose your main question is whether you should be betting River or not. I'm not really sure though. In a higher stakes game I think betting JJ here is standard since we can expect people to valuebet the River themselves with QQ+ but I don't think microstakes full ring players are value betting overpairs for 3 streets necessarily.

      Is he going to call TT/88/A9s all the time as well? There is no guarantee of that and he could definitely have some overpairs in his range so I think your play of checking back seems to be the better play.

      Hello faronel,

      Not much to comment here, we could consider betting for thin value but also Checking behind the river is fine and take a note on his play and with what he plays this way.

      Best Regards.
