      Hi,


      We might very well have the best hand here. True, nobody is going to fold an overpair, but they will fold any hand that didn't connect to that flop, and there are lots of those. Taking it down right now if possible is a decent outcome for you, as any card can outdraw you on the turn if it's checked around and they have stuff like 98s or KQ. Plus at these stakes people will sometimes call with worse overcards then yours, so you might get value that way.

      Until you get a better idea of what hands they are calling you with, i think you should just bet out given your position and take it from there.


      Hope it helps.
