      Pretty tight very passive player.
      I raised his cbet because I had no idea where I was at. It was really small which seemed really weak so I thought I might get him to fold pretty often, too. The turn was a scare card so I think I could fire again but I decided against it since I would probably never raise my flush draw on the flop I think so I couldn't really represent the completed draw IMO... But maybe I'm just overthinking it..
      Anyway, this hand has me all confused and I really don't know how to play it right..

      UTG+1 bets $2, Hero raises to $5, UTG+1 calls $3

      TURN ($14.75) 4:spade: 8:diamond: 7:spade: 3:spade:

      UTG+1 checks, Hero checks

      RIVER ($14.75) 4:spade: 8:diamond: 7:spade: 3:spade: J:heart:

      UTG+1 checks, Hero checks

      raising to find out where you are at is rarely a good idea. Raising here to get him to fold an overpair (if he is capable of doing that) with the intention of firing a turn is ok here. Otherwise i prefer just calling the cont. bet and re-evaluate turn.

      I would also raise on that board, only I´d make it at least 3x his size.
      It is not that much to see where I´m at, but just put pressure on overcards which would close to 100% and sometimes he would b/f with overpair.
      I would bet that turn card, unless he is calling station.
      Now he can´t beat anything and it doesn´t really matter if you´d call flushdraw on the flop, he doesn´t know that). I think 10$ is enough to fold his overpairs
