A set would at least raise turn, so it would be strange for him to have it.
But I think you should check river and let him either value bet or bluff.
Betting smaller on the river is also an option.

Hi UrGetinTaxed!

I think you played this fine. My default line with a big overpair out of position as the pre-flop raiser is to keep betting for value and only consider folding if you get raised. If villain has a set, he might slowplay the flop, but I think he usually raises the turn. Since he just calls the turn, I think his range is mostly one pair hands (overpairs like 88) but he might occasionally have a diamond draw. Since the flush draw missed, villain won't be calling any bet on the river with XXdd, but he should be pot-committed with something like 99 or 88. Targeting those hands, I'd sometimes go for a smaller river bet in order to be more sure of getting looked up, but given the stack sizes here, I think you should put villain all in. He could have a hand as strong as JJ, and I think he'd call off the rest of his stack with that.


Bracelet Winner
