You should consider raising the Flop. I would raise the Turn given that the board is really draw heavy now and I don't think NL5 players actually fold overpairs here so this is the best spot to go for value.

Raise flop for value and for protection.

We'd fold to a re-reraise though right ? Unless it's a minraise or something.

Hello elda420,

You are slowplaying your hand way too long, raise the flop and protect your hand there or either at least the turn. Though otherwise could still squeeze more value from him on the river whilst he could even have Ace high there.

Best Regards.
