      SB: $9.69
      BB: $11.15 Fishy 64/31/2.0 small sample
      Hero (UTG): $14.73
      MP: $8.02
      CO: $10.15
      BTN: $8.99

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is UTG with 9 :spade: 8 :spade:
      Hero raises to $0.40, MP calls $0.40, 3 folds, BB calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.25) 7 :spade: T :diamond: Q :spade: (3 players)
      BB bets $0.70, Hero raises to $2.10, MP folds, BB calls $1.40

      Turn: ($5.45) 4 :heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2.72, BB calls $2.72

      River: ($10.89) 6 :heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $9.51, BB calls $5.93 all in

      Is turn ok? I suppose we are commiting ourselves to a shove on the river anyways (That's right i'm still strugling with this thing :D ). If the situatoin forces, are we comfortable getting it in on the turn?

      Hello Pichux,

      Preflop: Depends on your postflop experience but as we so many fish against us I think I'd more often prefer to play such hands on later positions and fold it on UTG. But of course it's doable but you have to have good postflop skills.

      As played
      Flop: Raising here is totally fine, we could even play for stacks here.
      Turn: But as long he decided to Call us on flop raise then he will often continue here also, so therefore I'd prefer to just Check behind and see a free river. The bet here could be considerable if we would bet for value but at this time I don't think that we are doing that or either have fold equity.

      As played
      River: Easy shove for value but you could also just bet $6, sometimes shoving looks scarier. :f_cool:

      Best regards.
