      My thoughts:
      - Preflop I figured from the overlimp he wasn't on JJ+, I figured either two decent high cards. A low pair or suited connectors. Although I had see him play a few poor starting hands as well.

      - Flop I pick up an overpair so I bet out. Probably have the best hand here.

      - Turn is the interesting card. I get a set but any 8 is a straight. I am now ahead against any set or two pair hands. But only have a 26% chance of beating a made straight.

      I bet out because I think I am usually still ahead but then he pushes. I have to call 18ish into a pot of 55ish so about 33% pot odds.

      Are there enough other hands doing this to make the call or is this pretty much always the straight?

      He might do that with two pair or a lower set but most of the times he will show the straight . It`s marginal here I think but I`m calling probably

      A good spot to check behind.
      If the board pairs on the river we bust the str8, if not we lose the minimum.
      He might c/c lots of weaker hands on a blank river too.

      - Check behind.

      Why didn't I see this before.

      Obviously in the head of the moment I was excited over my set but obviously checking behind is such a good move. If I pick up a full boat I can get him for a lot of chips and if I miss I can see how much he bets before deciding.

      Thank you
