      I'd say that this all depends on your read of the player. If you know he's a regular (are there regulars on Nl5??) or he's a rock it's an easy fold, but if you think he's a fish then it's way more likely that your ahead, since he'd probably slowplay a hand bigger than yours. In this case I'd be more willing to call because he's more likely a fish since he is bought in for a half stack.

      *edit- I just realized that this is NL5 so he does have a full stack, so i guess it depends on your read, and against an unknown I'd fold.

      Overpair on such a dry board : call I'd say

      Co might c/shove with Jx, any pair. I wouldn´t fold overpair here unless player is very, very tight.
