      Am I playing overpairs too loose ?

      If it was heads-up i would probably play it like you did, since he's aggressive if he's bluffing there letting him continue is a fine plan imo. With another player in the pot on JTx tho, i think it's better to raise him up immediately, if he has something he'll call the raise, if he doesn't at least we won't give stuff like KQ/98 another shot at outdrawing us cheaply.

      As played he 5-outed you, it happens. Just make sure to note the change in his bet sizing once he hit better than one pair and remember in the future that he can donk TPNK there.

      Hope it helps.
