      Villian is unknown.

      Std raise preflop.

      On the flop I have difficulty putting him on a range but the big bet is rather scary. I decide that my hand is to good to fold and that I would not mind going broke there. However I do not want to isolate myself against his better hands and decide to just call it down.

      The turn he insta bets. My read is that the 9 made no difference to his hand meaning he did not flop 2 pair. I consider a shove there but I thought if I flat i remain the chance of checking behind on a cooler river.

      River is bad but I am commited and I call.

      If you can't put him on a range mineriva, you are essentially spewing money in my opinion.

      You block the nutstraight significantly but there is a lot of pair+SD,2pairs,bottomstraight and so on in his range. The turn is actually a bad card in some degree.

      I think I call the Flopbet but fold on this Turnbetsizing because 2:1 is really crappy. Your hand is not so good anymore due the timing speed, betsizing etc.

      I knew the 9 was a very bad card but he insta bet psb. I thought if he has 2 pair or set and 9 filled his hand then he would tank a bit to consider either a check or a smaller bet. Also if the 9 counterfeit his hand ie T8 then he would also tank a bit. So on the turn I did have an idea of his range ie:

      1) made str8
      2) Two pair. ie AT.
      3) pair and SD ie. 87s.

      I thought that I had a lot of equity against this range but if I shove he only calls me with (1).

      I take your point that maybe I should have read the insa bet + BETSIZE as the stronger part of his range.

      Oh and :

      "If you can't put him on a range mineriva, you are essentially spewing money in my opinion."
