      F**k unraised pots! :s_evil:
      At first i just wanted for some weaker hands to stay in the pot so called, after the raise should have stick to that strategy and i would have only called when the 9 hit the board. But, as played....Do we really can fold 2nd nuts here just because it's an unraised pot? :f_frown:

      Hello Pichux,

      Flop: I'd just fold it on flop since there is also a FD on board, also 8 could others give a bigger straight.

      As played
      Turn: As long the 8 came and we are in freeplay pot I'd more likely inclined to play for pot control here and not get fancy and reevaluate river. But as long we get reraised there, I think I would more often just fold it just the reason because it's a freeplay pot.

      Best regards.
