      stats on villain. vpip 45 PFR 3 WTSD 20 AF 2
      not sure what other stats to put up.. only got 30 hands anyway.

      Pacific Poker - $0.06 NL - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      Hero (BTN): $8.92
      SB: $6.00
      BB: $9.40
      UTG: $5.82

      SB posts SB $0.03, BB posts BB $0.06

      Pre Flop: ($0.09) Hero has 9:club: 8:club:

      UTG calls $0.06, Hero raises to $0.27, fold, fold, UTG calls $0.21

      Flop: ($0.63, 2 players) 8:heart: A:club: T:club:
      UTG checks, Hero bets $0.47, UTG calls $0.47

      Turn: ($1.57, 2 players) 7:spade:
      UTG bets $1.38, Hero calls $1.38

      River: ($4.33, 2 players) 9:heart:
      UTG bets $1.14, fold

      UTG wins $4.08

      not sure how i should have played the hand..
      when he bets turn i guess he could have any set or a straight??
      call is right i guess?
      should i ever shove there??

      also when it gets to river he only bets so small which i thought was weird
      calling is surely wrong, even though i made 2pair
      would it be terrible to shove though? i thought about it at the time but just folded so no idea what he actually had.

      Hello qnb07,

      On turn we have implied odds and against that kind of opponent you could sometimes even Call but more often we are just Calling for flush since with straight we will never know where we stand since he could already have a higher straight right on turn. On river you have to fold with only 2pairs and shoving would be bad here, since he will Call most of his betting hands.

      But if you like to avoid variance then you could also just fold it on turn.

      Best regards.
