      I think this board is great to slowplay. My plan was to call flop and T and shove R.

      He bets strong T but I thought there is more value in raising R.
      R comes relatively blank but when he bet so strong I was considering only calling but in the end I went with my initial plan.
      Seeing the hand now I don't have a clue what he would be betting so strong on this R? Maybe Q9/ Q7/ Q6/ 97...even AQ is questionable.

      Hi Yax,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: The board is dry so slowplaying the flop is fine.

      The turn is a good card to barrel but Qx gets there and overpairs are still ok so I think it's time to raise (plus there are more draws now like spades and TJ).

      Why would we wait till the river to raise there? And I wouldn't shove over a small overbet. We have a call at best.

      Board is dry and there are almost no draws except 87 and JT on the T. So I give him the chance to his some pair or two pair. If he bet 1/3 or 1/2 pot I agree shoving would look strong and I would see him calling rarely.

      Why you don't like shoving R? only GS came and 99 beat us. Other than that we crush this board.
      I agree however that I could r this T if I wanted the whole stack.

      Tnx :)

      You forgot about the backdoors on the turn. Plenty of those in his range BvB.

      Does his bet size really add up to you? If he had such a strong hand why would he overbet river and not the other streets?

      At these limits an overbet is almost always the nuts and I doubt 2p does that.
