      hi hi
      on the flop i think it is an easy raise with over pairs, his play is pretty fishy and i would like to get as much value as possible. therefore i like your raise but , we can raise slightly larger here for more value like $10-12.

      i would still follow through betting on the turn big, yes some two pairs hit, but he could pick up a lot of strong equity hands like pair plus straight draw, and anyway we wouldn't fold right? so just bet big for value instead of getting value owned when people reshove over you and you call
