      Flop: I have the board crushed, although villain can still have an 8 or case A. I think a bet here would be overplayed; I can't see villain having much to x/c with here, so x/beh for bluff induce.

      Turn: I think villain can have any draw, 8x or Ax maybe 7x or some weaker PP taking a stab. I think I have two options here:
      1) raise T:
      :spade: I get value from draws he might bet/call T with but invest on R with in addition to any made hand that he would b/c (AX/8X/77 for eg)
      :heart: I don't allow him to continue with any bluffs
      2) call T and value bet/raise R:
      :spade: I allow him to continue with bluffs on the R
      :spade: If he completes a draw he might continue to invest or even stack off
      :heart: If he misses R he can only invest further with a bluff

      Which line do you think is better here and why?

      River: I made it big here because I think that villain either has:
      1) a bluff that he will never b/c
      2) a made hand that he will have a hard time b/f'ing

      since board is so dry and you have nuts then I likely would have played the same way- you can also consider raising turn small 0.42$ to try getting all the money in against 8x+ he would also likely raise/call his draws and showdown value hands.

      I would likely raise river 1$, since 1.6$ seems a little too strong and likely get only called if he has there flush or trips

      best regards,
