      His checkraise on this flop didn't make any sense to me, so I decided to float here to take it down on the turn. Guess 3betting could be good as well, but I don't like losing my gutshot chance if he for some reason has a hand.

      Turn: I didn't have any 9 in his range since I doubt A9, 9T, JT would play this way on the flop. Only things left I feel is 78, gutshots and maybe made flushdraws.

      Also I need some help with the estetics in my hand posting. I can't figure out how to post hands from HEM in any other way than "copy hands to clipboard".

      I'd usually b/f the flop.
      While it is true that his c/r seems strange, it doesn't mean he can't do it with Ax.
      And after all we only have 8high.

      "Guess 3betting could be good as well, but I don't like losing my gutshot chance if he for some reason has a hand."

      This statement is contradictory: If he has a hand, you don't want to put any more money into the pot in a passive way because you don't get the odds!
      The only way to justify continuing is, if you say you can get him to fold this hand.

      Generally you shouldn't assume people are bluffing too much, especially when it comes to checkraising.
      I believe that he actually folded some Ax hand on the river becaue he thought we're valuebetting 9x.
      You can still not justify calling the checkraise on the flop because you need to hit this 9 to get him to fold by the river, the rest of the time this is just burning money.


      About posting the hands:
      "Copy to clipboard" is the first step, but instead of posting this here right away, you have to put it in a handconverter, for example this one.
      Select f.e. "twoplustwo forums" as format, this should work here, too.
      Click "convert" and copy&paste the result here.
