      BU wins with a straight, eight high (8h 8d)

      Ok so I think I just got unlucky on the river. But anyway, when the straight finally appeared on the table, I knew the 0,10 cent raise was a value bet. I just knew for sure. And the only thing he could have had was an 8. I thought he might have had A8o or something. But well, I'm so new to this thing, I just HAD to see if it was a value bet.

      Because if he wanted to bluff me out 0,10 would have been way too low for that for a pot of $1,11.

      And perhaps the raise on the turn was a little... dangerous to begin with.

      On the Turn I would indeed bet a bit bigger like $.4. Then this river is shitty but I still bet/fold because you can't check/call really profitable and you might fold out a split which is good because then you have 100% of the pot :P

      Best regards,
