      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has J:diamond: J:heart:

      Flop: ($0.39, 2 players) 7:heart: 6:club: 6:heart:

      CO checks, Hero bets $0.58, CO raises to $1.25 and is all-in, Hero calls $0.67

      River: ($3.41, 2 players) 3:club:

      PF: 3-bet to gain some value from weaker hands and I have the benefit of playing my hand in marginal spots due to my positional advantage.

      F: I bet to get value from weaker pairs and also to protect myself from overcards or draws. Should I expect an unknown to raise with an over-pair here or just flat call?

      T: I didn't like this card much, 88-TT gained more equity which is never good but I figure I've still got the best hand most of the time. When he shoves, I really don't like it but I've got to call since I'm getting such good odds and I will be ahead sometimes?

      i dont like our flop+turn sizings. go for halfpot flop and turn so that we dont have awkwards stack to pot ratios river.
      id bet 20ish otf and 40ish ott.

      as played its a bit of a meeeh spot. could v well find a fold vs passive villains - i assume hes a fish given his stack sizes.
      w/o info i assume he doesnt have that many 6x or str8 ala T8 in his pf opening range so expect to see 99/77, TT+ and big hearts a lot.
      i sigh call

      Hello Raknyo,

      If you betting the turn then you clearly doing it for value and should be planning to go broke. :)

      Best Regards.
