      Pre Flop: ($0.45) Hero is MP with T :club: A :heart:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.90, CO calls $0.90, 3 folds

      Flop: ($2.25) T :heart: 5 :diamond: 5 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, CO raises to $4, Hero calls $2.50

      Turn: ($10.25) 7 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $7.00, Hero calls $7

      River: ($24.25) 2 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $18.15, Hero calls $18.10 all in

      On the flop, i think calling is fine.

      On the turn, i should decide if i want to calldown or to fold. I lose only to slowpalyed overpairs (mostly JJ and sometimes QQ. So should i call turn+river or fold turn?

      Hey AchillesBG,

      Preflop open is fine, although not mandatory when you have a CO playing 28/23 and 3betting 8%.

      Flop cbet for protection/value is fine.

      When villain raises I'd probably fold. Villain raising this board doesn't really make sense for value, so I'd use history to make this decision. Vs unknown I'd usually just give them credit when they raise a dry board (even though they represent fewer value combos).

      If villain had a history of bluff-raising dry boards and/or value-raising worse Tx's here you should continue. 7 and the 2 are basically blanks. If villain had a history of firing multiple barrels as a bluff you should call down. If villain historically bluff raises flop and gives up on later streets he usually has an overpair/5x by the river.

      The reason I fold vs unknowns is to avoid guessing games. You need reads to navigate a spot like this postflop.
