      Hi,


      Well you over-represented your hand, sort of, by raising the flop, which means now you're stuck somewhere in the middle of his range, you beat his draws and you're valuetowning yourself against the overpairs that he will almost certainly call down with.

      So either don't raise the flop to begin with or know why you're doing it. If you're convinced you're ahead of his range on the flop then betting on blanks until you're all-in is your goal from the flop onward and you shouldn't be surprised to see him show up with a better hand from time to time. If this is just an information raise forget it and just call. If it's some kind of cheap showdown play because you think he won't 3-bet anyway but he will bet/call overpairs and draws alike and check it down unless he beats you for sure, I usually don't like that line but it's ok and you should check back the turn.


      Hope it helps.
