      villain playing 21/17/3.3 AF over 547 hands
      68/43 flop/turn cbet

      thoughts on hand?

      shitty thing is i can only rep 88/KJ with flop x/r, while villain can still have all sets.

      flop overbet made me think villain had big hand, turn sizing was smaller, opted for x/r.

      river do i bet? or xc vs all missed draws/ sometime KJ

      Hi.

      I would just c/r the Flop right away and fire thrice. I don't see a problem with you not being able to rep JJ/KK. If villain wants to 3bet the Flop that's really fine. You can easily flat and remember that you always have the option to turn your hand into a bluff as well on flush cards (not that I would recommend doing it all the time though vs any player)

      As played you should definitely be betting yourself. You rep a ton of busted draws and he'll be very inclined to bluff catch with all his top pair type of hands. You can use weaker made hands to bluff catch instead - I just think it's a waste to use such a strong hand to bluff catch.

      ok so then plan is to bet/fold??

      i dont think villain's will ever shove river here as a bluff at NL50. we can discount villain having JJ/KK since he would 3bet those on turn most likely. i understand that we should bet now that you mention it, but then bet/fold?

      that depends on the size. honestly i don't really feel like folding unless he makes some super huge jam and higher sets probably raise you at some point in time.

      really hard to say, but i don't think it's too important cos i think it's going to happen super rarely. maybe bet/fold is fine.
