opponent in this hand liked to bet small when he had good hands and thought he was ahead. he flopped two pair with JTo and allowed an opponent to get there on the river w/ 88 when an 8 came, giving his opponent the set to beat his own 2pr.

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Hi rule,

I think it's good, you've observed the villain likes to bet small when he's got it, and when the 4 straight comes he doesn't bet small, he overbets the pot, so we can safely feel we have the best hand here and he doesn't hold a 7. Check-raising him the rest of the way in is fine being out of position, flatting is more difficult to get him the rest of the way in as there are other scary cards that can come and we'd have to donk into him, or risk him checking down the river. So I like the play.
