      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 5, 5.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, MP3 calls $0.75, CO calls $0.75, 3 folds.

      Flop: ($2.6) 7, 3, 5 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $1.00, CO folds, Hero calls $1.00.

      Turn: ($4.6) T (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 bets $2.00.

      Villain is 12/4/0.7 tight passive fish
      His hand screams overpair, but What would be an optimum raise size to extract max value? Is $6 too little?

      Imo if u want to get max value bet/bet/bet. C/c flop c/r turn screams more strenght than cbet flop bet turn anytime. Anyway if he has a big hand like overpair / two pair he will raise ur cbet and u can go from there and if not unless he is total maniac he wont bluff at u more than once since u will show some strenght by c/c that flop.

      Hello,

      Check/Raise flop for max value and on further streets bet/bet for max value.

      Best regards,

      Thanks for the comments. I would normally lead out flop but decided to make this play for balance for my c/c flop c/r turn bluffs. Would appreciate an opinion on the optimum raise size on turn.

      I think c/r flop seems a little more than c/c flop, c/r turn, since he then might also fold his overpair, but if You c/r flop, then your hand range in his eyes are wider than just sets and would put more money in with his overpairs.
      c/r turn to 6$ is fine amount
