Opponents stats of 25/15/75, Flop Cont bet 2/2 times, Only over 20 hands so not very reliable stats.
I put him on 77+, AJs+, AQ+ pre flop. Couldn't see how the flop may have helped him other than the 77 set, which is not particularly likely from an odds
point of view.
I think my check-raise was a nice play as it shows strength and should knock off most over card hands and take the pot there.
On the turn any draws or mediocre hands that I could beat would likely take the free card, they obviously weren't afraid of a check-raise again, so in the end I was thinking overpair like TT+ would make the most sense, and have me crushed. The only thing I could beat bout be an over excited A7 or AK, AQ hearts.
Anyone else have any ideas about the range etc, or how I could have played differently?
