      hi there,
      we would need more info on the villian before we can make a more informed decision but with the given and assuming he is a standard reg, i will usually start by betting 1/2 pot for value vs any 2nd pair(we lose to 99 of course) and some random hands like AK that they prefer to try to call than to cbet

      we will value own ourselves vs Tx but he's probably going to value bet at least 1 street on a blank turn/river anyway so we still lose the same amount, but lose value vs all those AK, 2nd/3rd pair type hands when turn comes a worse card
