      SB: $25.10 (100.4 bb)
      BB: $25 (100 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $41.69 (166.8 bb)
      MP: $30.87 (123.5 bb)
      CO: $37.96 (151.8 bb)
      BTN: $33.43 (133.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with :Th: :Ts:
      Hero raises to $0.75, MP calls $0.75, 4 folds

      Flop: ($1.85) :8c: :9c: :5s: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.18, MP calls $1.18

      Turn: ($4.21) :4c: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.01, MP calls $2.01

      River: ($8.23) :Td: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $26.93, Hero calls $26.93

      Preflop and flop were quite standard. My turn bet size was debatable. I bet only half pot because I planned to fold to a raise.

      My hand was improved otr. I chose to check call because I thought my hand was most valuable to see a show down. If I bet and he raises, it could be a tough decision for me. By checking, I could also induce some bluffs, and he might have a lot of possible sets, two pairs in his range so that he would not check behind. However, I didn't expect that he cold shoved. I still made this hero call because his move was quite suspicious to me.

      What would you guys do?

      I would go for a bet on the river with top set and call a raise.
      You don’t want he checks behind. The bet on turn could be larger, but that depends per villain.
      It’s weird he’s over shoving, but tough to fold top set here, but he could have a flush a decent amount of the time.
