      Raise more on flop, it's too drawy board so there are too many cards that could kill either yours or his action. first hand that i'd put him on here is 87s so not only river could give him flush/str8 flush but also turn give him str8 as well. :) Turn and river i think is ok.

      I'd raise a *little* bit more on flop I think. Otherwise well played, but stop posting results!!

      Raise to ~.80 on the flop. Jam turn.

      He's leading, so it's unlikely he donks with 78 on the flop (unless spades), he either has a weaker set, overpair, top pair or on the outside some big draw or two pair. So just get it in when he leads the turn as a lot of rivers could slow him down and if he has a big draw, the time to get the money in is on the turn.

      If he has 78 of spades, you still have outs, but it's the only hand that would kind of make sense that beats you.

      Edit: I doubt he plays draws aggressively at all, though. It's possible, but I feel it's less likely.
