      I misplayed here on the turn I think. As I just called his re raise on the flop I think this was a clearly c/c or c/r, right? My thought was that if he had an overpair he might check behind on turn, but maybe would just flat my turn bet.

      And on the flop I think I'm losing value if I re raise, on that very dry flop I don't think hands like 88-JJ would pay.

      If you plan to bet on the turn OOP you might as well raise rather than call on the flop. You have no benefit in giving or taking a card here, and this overcard hits a range that will scare villain's 44-TT out of the game.

      So as you said, as soon as you flatted the flop you were committed to a check on the turn. Represent an overpair or a couple of high cards and let the villain try and push you off them with another big bet.

      As it is I dont think you could have got much more value out of this hand - it looks most like BB playing a retarded version of blind defence that must be being popularised by the same strategy site that is teaching the "bluff by calling" method: call preflop, bluff-raise the cbet postflop after giving you a chance to hit a monster.

      Id say no matter what you did you probably had maximum possible value out of this already.

      being oop just 3-bet to 8-10$ and call shove
      if you decide to bet/call, then turn should be c/c or c/rai
