      Preflop I just flatted because of weaker opponents on blinds + due to higher folds to 3bet of midstacker. Postflop Im going for value mainly from some worse PPs:

      My question: What sizing do you reccomend OTR? I think his range will be something like 99-JJ, 67, mby some 8x like 87? So imo there should be some thin value bet?

      Preflop: I think it's reasonable when he doesn't call or 4b too often. Also, with an overpair postflop, we would have no problems playing for stacks anyway given the stack depth.

      Flop and Turn : Standard 2 barrel. The Weakish reg is in the BU which should increase his speculative range. HOWEVER, the open raise size is 4BB and he's kind of tight so I don't expect too many 8X hands in his range.

      Would bet maybe 1.80 on the Flop and 3.50 on the Turn. On the River I am fine with block betting 1/3 pot if you think he won't bluff raise you here. He should make a crying call with TT/99 a lot of the time. Do we bet/fold or bet/call? Probably bet/fold if we think he's weak.

      Yep, he is kind of straight forward player so I dont expect many bluff raises here, so it is b/f OTR.
