      Hey,

      I do see him raising with worse, like T7, 79 for sure so I don't think flatting there is bad. The bad thing is he often has better hands like 86, J8, 44, TT, 77, 99 too in his range. I think you played it fine, maybe debatable on the river if you can call or not. What made you inclined to fold?

      Thank you Emmanuel. Well the reason I folded is the following:

      If he likes to c/raise for value I expect him to c/r Tp on the flop since a lot of worse cards can come for him on the turn.


      So on the turn (and given Balugas theorem) I am strongly re evaluating my position when I get check raised. I do get a lot of value from overpairs so I proceed with the hand.

      On the river I loose to all overpairs, sets, fullhouse and straights.

      I can only beat T4 which I dont think is calling preflop and his Tx range which I think is mostly c/raising flop.

      Yep, I like it!

      You base thinking on both board texture, actions, ranges so that's very good. I agree that it's close but more towards a fold, esp since bluff frequencies go down on river usually but the most important thing is to have a solid thought process and reasoning behind your action because later you can just adjust when the circumstances change.
