      I played this difrently then I usualy would, I am trying to work on geting value out of worse hands instead of being scared of monsters under the bed. I think on the flop there is more chance he has 9 then a flush draw if he did have a 9 I'm beat if he dosent and I 3Bet I think worse hand might call once like 6-8s then fold on the turn. So I played to get max value from a bluff. The river was close, not because I thought he had an Ace but because I thought he might have a 9 and I thought about makeing a hero fold.

      Hello BigAl123456,

      I guess I'd often times just raise it on flop and get it in for the reason that those players are just capable of going broke right on flop with any PP or even TP and also FD. Otherwise I'd get it in on turn. And as played if you Called the turn then likely I am not giving it up on river either. Rather with some reads give it up on turn (good reads) or just going broke.

      Best regards.
