15 hands 23/13 nothing out of the line yet
Should I call the turn and river? I think I played this badly cause ott, his range should be mostly flushes. The smaller sets should try to get it in OTF, air should fold, overpairs should just call and check at least the turn, if not the river too. Was I being married to my top set? At the time I was still hoping he has a set in his range, maybe two pair but would he value bet it vs my range?

I think we should be betting the turn, checking offers him a free card option and he has so many hands in his range that would benefit from a free card... singleton clubs, 7x, 6x combos to be specific. I would bet/get it in personally.

He still has sets possible, waiting to raise you on the turn, then betting because you checked, but again if he has 2 pair or a set, he may elect to not bet if he feels scared of the 8c, and now all those bad river cards kill our action if they don't beat us.
