      So I am here again with an overpair hand.

      Query preflop whether I should have 4bet AI or at least to $6 or $7. I wanted the call obviously so I tend to 4bet small. Not worried about balancing too much as it is Rush.

      I then decide to check behind on the flop. Partly for pot control and partly to induce a bluff on the turn which seemed to have worked. I figure only really AK or KQ bets here with a hand or possibly a set that has slow played (or tried to c/r the flop) or if I got really unlucky KK.

      The river though I felt was an ugly card. Now being beaten by 55-99 or KK but figure I have to call.

      Comments and advice always welcome!

      4.75$ is a little small, I would prefer make it 6$, since likely once he c/r pf he won´t really fold to your 4-bet

      once you check back flop and going to call turn bet and river shove then I think better is just bet/call flop yourself
      board is a little drawy, but you´re still ahead most of his c/r range and no need to give him free cards that could improve his hand
