      Not much to say about this really. I bet for value all the way down and just could not put him on what he had, and even if that was in his range I felt I had to call given the pot size.

      I would b/f the river. Not too many draws have hit, but quite a few have picked up a pair. He will also call you with weaker pairs often. By check/calling you isolate yourself against a stronger range because he will check weaker pairs behind (cf. negative freeroll).

      Also, I would bet a bit bigger on flop and turn (for value, not protection obviously).

      Bet more on flop and turn.

      On river Bet/fold seems to be good option. like already stated logigal draws like 9J or 97 made a pair and may be willing to call your bet , but rarely bet themselves.

      Although if you know that your opponent is aggressive on river (bluffing with busted draws), you could c/call.

      And dont post results.

      Thanks guys,

      Didn't appreciate about not posting results, will not do from now!

      In hindsight I should have bet bigger on flop and turn. With the river, I see what you say about b/f but surely the pot is so big I can't fold to his AI?

      well, if you bet more on the flop and turn, then pot is a littlebit bigger, but you can still b/f river to half bet size, since likely he isn´t bluffing there and your overpair isn´t good.
      But going for showdown is also ok. Not too often people would call you down with one pair hand if you raise pf, and bet flop, turn and river
