      I hate the call on the flop. You have trash (GS) so just fold. You stole, cbet and it failed.

      As played, why do you bet that small on T+R? Any pair and draw (if any) will call you down because they get the correct odds. So you made him fold the river with some broadway or a strange draw.

      Which draws do you put in his flop range 97 and 75? 97 got there on the turn...

      when i say draw could just have been 2 high cards, possibly suited. I completely see your point.the call on the turn was strage especially with a flush draw coming. Most with something will reraise. As for the bet size, in Rush betting 2bb from BU is standard as so many people just check the check/fold option. I do agree that it was a bad play.

      If you put him on a draw, I think you do not even beat that draw on SD when draws are missing.
      Also when you bet/3bet Flop you mostly going to be up versus a draw and you have to hit a ''clean'' 9 or 5 to win SD

      So in the end I would fold to a raise on the Flop because your hand only functions as a blocking hand against a draw. FUrthermore it is toast versus a made hand. And the ways of winning with this hand @ Non-SD is pretty high variance with a low expected value

      Best regards,
