Hi Nocco,

Tough spot. I like your preflop and flop lines, on this depth of money on such a rough board I think it's prudent. I would probably call again on the turn. That's a bad card obv but if we call twice it's unlikely the villain will bomb the river on a bluff or with worse hands, so we can use our position to make a good river decision. If he checks to us on the end on a blank river we can make a token value bet to extract from hands like AhTc. If he makes a small blocking type bet we can call and show our overpair down, and if he bombs the river (a strong value line) we can simply fold then feeling confident we were no good the large majority of the time.
