      NL5 + overpair = bet bet bet.

      Flop & turn are ok. But seriously, bet the river and make it like half pot, that way when he jams you can still fold but he will most likely still call you down with JJ/TT, etc.
      Check/folding the river is seriously horrible imo.

      Agree overall. Check/folding is still a lot better than check/calling, but it's way worse than bet/folding in my opinion. Just fire out like $2.2 for him to call with a worse pair and happily fold to a jam while thanking him for sucking at extracting value with his sets when deepstacked.


      Hope it helps.
