      Preflop: good raise i think, 5BB should do the trick.
      Flop: the board isn't too great for you, but you have to protect your hand. I would make my bet a little bit bigger, almost pot size actually.
      Turn: Meh, doesn't complete the draw but Jx hands were definitely in his range. (altough they might raise that on the flop for protection, but yeah... it's 5NL).
      I like the river check, since you wouldnt get much value out of worse hands that way, and by just letting him bet you can call with 4:1 odds. For those pot odds I wouldnt fold my overpair. So I think it's well played, but I would make the protectionbet slightly larger.

      Hi mrbeast,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: looks good, can even pot there

      Turn: we've now lost a good chunck of his range from which we were trying to get value so I'd bet smaller, closer to 1/2 pot

      River: I'd bet fold here 1/2 again. Given that the board is double paired he won't fold 77-TT or some Ax hands.
