      What to do on turn- I'm not sure if I raise will he call with OP here. Is my river value bet size ok? This board must look scary to him, so I don't think he will call big bet.

      well i wouldnt know what to do on turn, i instictively raise it up though. i have posted similar hand here, still waiting to find out, shouldn't be long ( ;) kaitz20)

      but yeah i instictively raise turn, make a bigger pot.

      as you played it, i would bet 9 on river because he is likely to call playing two pair and A high.

      Really tight players are usually easy to spook, and nothing is scarier than a call flop raise turn line. I actually like how you played it, you're more likely to get another street of value from that guy if he bets it himself, i don't think there are any hands he's calling a turn raise with that he wouldn't valuebet or c/c on the river.

      I'd bet the river a tad bigger tho, i don't think he folds an overpair for something like $7 there unless he somehow feels threatened by the double paired board, which he shouldn't really. You can't really have a busted draw unless it's exactly 76 so he'll rarely c/c A-high even if you make it smaller.

      Hope it helps.
