      UTG ($136.5BB) 137bb
      CO ($47.5BB) 48bb
      BTN Hero ($100BB) 100bb
      SB ($97BB) 97bb
      BB ($80BB) 80bb
      Pre-Flop: (1.5BB, 5 players) Hero is BTN :Jd: :Js:

      2 folds, Hero raises to 3BB, 1 fold, BB raises to 7BB, Hero calls 4BB

      Flop: :7d: :6s: :5h: ($14.5BB, 2 players)
      BB bets 15BB, Hero ?

      Hello guys. What would you do? Maybe call the flop and then give up on the turn if he keeps betting that big? I know I have overpair, but fish at nl2 usually tend to either min3bet or crazy huge 3bet with monsters, at least from what I have seen, so my overpair can be easily beaten by his overpair.

      It’s a weird bet for sure and he could have some draws in his range. I would call here as well and see what happen on the turn, because folding seems indeed weak and if you raise you will get committed on a shove.

      Cheers,

      Villain looks recreational and has a bit short stack. I would 4bet preflop and get it in if he 5bets.
      OTF with an overpair I wouldn't think about it too much, the hand is too strong to be folded vs a single bet. So call and re-evaluate OTT.

      What a tough spot again. I guess you have to call, but there are a lot of turn cards that are bad for us (K, Q, A, 8 , 4).

      Preflop I would have played exactly the same way . Flop I would definitely call and turn if our hand does not improve , I just fold if he´s bet. I would have played that hand so.

      I think on the Button vs the Blinds we can go for the 4bet with JJ preflop

      Can 4bet preflop, with this size recreantional may 3bet many worse hands. OTF is call, if he bombs turn and we not improve fold.
