      Villain is a tight regular who doesn’t go to showdown much. I’m pretty sure he could be isolating a bit wider here so I call IP… and if I call with a hand like this I don’t think I can give it up on the flop so I call twice (can i really fold to such a small turn bet?). Now when he checks I’m not sure if I should just give it up?

      Calling twice is std when he bets so small on turn and ur k and j outs may or may not be live. On the river i expect him to cc hands with sd value (med strength hands) and cf hands with none (busted draws).

      I think u shuld bet halfpot or slightly less like 40% pot. We alrdy know how he plays various parts of his range.

      Divide his range out between 89s, flush draws and some tx and weaker overpairs (i am a little surprised to see him cc AA which is very strong imo)

      When u halfpot u need at least 33% fold equity. Try finding out if u do.
