      there are not many hands that have you beat on flop / turn, especially with "donks'" handranges he could be holding bottom pair with A kicker. You should protect your hand stronger on flop and turn against flushdraws though. I'd raise flop to something like 3$ and keep up the pressure. If villain has a set or something like K8 then so be it, but mostly that is not the case. If you get scared of any kind of resistance all the time with overpair into this kind of board, you will lose a lot of value in a longer run in my opinion.

      Maybe you should re-raise more in the flop for protection. I think that river call is good, because you are getting good pot odds and he could also bet with Kx.

      I was afraid of CO not SB actually. Had no stats on him and he called a raise preflop and a raise on the flop. If I was only up against a SB I'd have lost alot more :)

      Hi mchaggis!

      I would raise more on the flop (~$3) to protect the hand. On the turn I would push all-in because you often have the best hand and your opponents often have a flushdraw or might call you with a K.

      Good luck at the tables!
