      Min-raise him on the turn?
      Wanted to put him all in on the river.... bad card to do it though. The overbet was a misclick, wanted to bet 5$

      We want to play for stacks here so we have to get a check raise in there somewhere, on either flop or the turn, when to do it I think it depends on what line you normally take, personally i like check raising flops for value and with my bluffs/semi-bluffs. In this case i would do the same since any 9 or 10 will kill your action.

      His AF is huge, just check river and he would shove there a lot of times as a bluff.
      I would c/r flop, bet 1/2 pot on the turn and put him all-in on the river.
      He woudl likely go all-in on hte flop with overpair.
