      I was on this table some 30min and I experienced some bad beats and had to lay down in some medium sized pots. Most of the money I lost against my opponent in this hand.

      EDIT : Learned how to extract for Elephant finally so I'm reposting the hand

      OK so is there any chance this is just a blocking bet? Would u guys shove or maybe go with a lower bet? What about the flop, was just calling OK?

      I'm not sure what his stats are since I don't use elephant and I don't know the stats order.

      On the flop you can call for a TP(K - 2 outs) and OESD(6 outs, discounting 2 for possible flush).

      On the turn I'd raise like to $5. You still need protection for a FD.

      Thanks, I'll still keep my opinion. On the flop you should call for the pot odds and implied odds against that opponent, on the turn it looks like a blocking bet, he might hold a T or a FD imo and he just wants to see a cheap river/showdown. Anyway you have to raise, build that pot and protect against FD, and some cards that would make your straight look obvious (like 8, J and K).

      I don't like this, why starting to be aggressive on the turn? Your first step here is to bet the flop.

      I´d contibet on the flop, since if I hit my draw I can bet turn for value+ I always have some fold equity. You should c/r turn for 4$ to make pot enough large that you could push on the river.

      Nice, bad luck for him because you got a set but that's for calling pf with Q9s.
