      2 folds, Hero raises to $2.00, 2 folds, BB calls $1.50.

      BB checks, Hero bets $8.00, BB calls $8.00.

      Final Pot: $44.75

      * Value bet the river or check behind because the board paired? I went with a small value-bet due to check-call line from villain to the Qd.
      * Call or raise on that flop with 12 monster outs and 6 overpair outs?

      i am definitely reraising the flop, not only do you have fold equity, you are also building up the pot in case you hit (which is so likely since u have 12 + 6 outs). in your case, you didn't raise the flop, which is why the pot is so small and you couldn't stack him. as for the board pairing, it isn't very likely that he has a set from the beginning, only 22 would play in such a way (maybe JT too), though he is a fish and he could be having any pair here.

      i would value bet river too, as stated before, he could easily have other hands besides a fullhouse

      Flop is a sure reraise and happy to call a shove.
      One taken the initiative, easy to get it in when you hit.
      Bet river is a must. His range is too wide here to check behind.Make it bigger, up to 2/3 pot - he is calling trips, top2,KQ ,str8.
