      Dealt to Hero 8:heart: 8:spade:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $1.75, fold, Hero calls $1.75, fold, fold

      FLOP ($4.25) 9:heart: 2:heart: 3:diamond:

      UTG+1 checks, Hero checks

      TURN ($4.25) 9:heart: 2:heart: 3:diamond: Q:diamond:

      UTG+1 checks, Hero checks

      RIVER ($4.25) 9:heart: 2:heart: 3:diamond: Q:diamond: 2:spade:

      UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $2.25 ??

      Villain - 23/15, check/raise flop - 13%, Flop Cbet - 68%

      I prefer to check behind the flop, because i was scared of check/raise and i have to fold maybe best hand if he check/raises.

      I cant see sence in betting this turn and turn my hand into a bluff.

      After his check on river i'm betting for value from 44-77, which pay me often here, i think.

      If villain leveled himself he can call me lighter (A high maybe), i think, cuz my line is so strange.

      It depends on how you think villain is playing his draws. If he is playing them aggressively and is cbetting them on that kind of board then I like your line and I might bet a little bigger on the river like 3 or so.

      If he is taking the passive route with his draws as well then I think that a bet for protection on the turn is a better alternative.

      What is fold to missed c-bet?

      Without much more information, I think you should bet almost any turn card like that one, at least.

      Hello Ico0o,

      There are so many draws which may pay you on turn but not on river. And as well you can bet the turn for free showdown too.

      Best regards.
