      I thought hes making some kind of move on such a board. 77 and 88 crushes me but he still can have OP or two pair here sometimes.

      Even if he slowplayed an overpair preflop, once he raises that flop i don't think he plans on going away. 98/87/JT/99/88/77 are all possible, fit his play perfectly and won't be folding either. The only way you're ahead is if he's indeed making a move with the same hand, or air.

      I think you'll find out that regs are making moves way less often than you'd think at nl25, especially since they don't expect you to c-bet that flop with air very often, so they aren't raising expecting to have huge FE. Since you're likely behind, you might even be drawing to a split and you don't have any FE of your own in my mind, i'd just muck it right there.

      If you really feel like he's making some move then calling is the only way for him to put more money in with air, but it's gonna be a pain to play out of position on later streets. Without a specific read on him i don't think this is worth the trouble, give him credit and pitch it.

      Hope it helps.
