      I think this is a straightforward hand. Your bet sizing is also fine in my opinion. He could call 3 streets with a top pair - type hand.
      And like every time: you must be willing to fold when you face a minraise from the opponent, because an overpair is just a pair :tongue:
      I had lost many buyins like this, just saying... Good luck :D

      Hi MeAmor,

      Preflop: looks good.

      Flop: Cbet is fine. Board is dry so our bet doesn't have to be too big. If villain is a fish we can still bet on the bigger side.

      Turn: The 5 doesn't change much so his draws/pairs are in the same situation as the flop. Only 5x gets there and he won't have many (56s, A5s).

      I'd also bet/fold here for value against Jx, TT, 99, etc.
