      SB: $20 (100 bb) 24/21/3.3/11.0/13/275 Flop fold to cbet 75% WTSD 13%
      BB: $22.10 (110.5 bb)
      Hero (MP): $20 (100 bb)
      CO: $9.89 (49.5 bb)
      BTN: $22.64 (113.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with 8 7
      Hero raises to $0.60, 2 folds, SB calls $0.50, BB folds

      Flop: ($1.40) 7 2 7 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.05, SB calls $1.05

      Turn: ($3.50) 3 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.80, SB calls $2.80

      River: ($9.10) 5 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $3, SB calls $3

      I first made my bet size to half pot but thought I might get folds a lot of the times and maybe overpairs might call a smaller bet but maybe not a half pot sized bet.

      Hi.

      Just keep betting 2/3 or 3/4 pot on the River. I think given starting positions he can very easily have hands as strong as TT/JJ/QQ/KK/AA and I would not be too surprised. And i think he would call down with these hands pretty often.

      If you think about gaining more value from a smaller range of hands vs gaining less value from a larger range of hands, I think you'll find that the first option is probably more profitable in this instance. Besides, the flush draws also missed so we can still be representing some air

      Thanks.
