      Hey there,

      I just wonder, is this hand just a cooler or...?

      Opponent seemed reasonable, possibly regular, so I thought there can't be many worse hands he is shoving on this river, maybe 66, but imo that's it while JJ, 7h5h and 44 beat me. I don't think he shoves a flush there nor bluffs.

      you can't fold there 3rd nuts.
      If he has there JJ or 44 then it is just a cooler, btw I think 44 would raise anyway on the flop, so it is only JJ that he should also 3-bet enough times pf.
      I think he can shove there also missed flushdraw, sometimes turning smt like 55 into bluff thinking he can beat your overpair and so on

      Don't you think we could also bet bigger T and R? I think he's still calling a lot, especially on the Turn, and it makes the R easier to play and ++value.

      Bet all 3 streets bigger IMO.

      Make flop $3.00, turn at least $7.00 as played, river... well could be slightly bigger. If he calls $10, he'll probably call $12 to.

      sure bet sizes can be bigger on the turn and river
