      We are OOP in a SB so we're OOP for the rest of the pot, I don't think we can chase away a lot of limpers by raising preflop and playing mid pair OOP is :f_mad: so just a complete.

      On the flop leading looks like the only option, the board is drawy and we can't give any free cards. Everybody folds except initial limper, who is 64/37 after ~ 200 hands, so he can be holding anyting right now. I leaned towards putting him on a flush draw rather than SD and we block most sensible TP or two pair variants.

      Turn 6c not the greatest card since it completes a SD for T9, 59 or 45 and adds one more FD.

      Here comes 1st question:
      How much should we bet: 3/4 - full pot for max protection vs FD or less for pot control since a straight has just arrived.

      River J changes nothing, T9 is already there, both FD miss.

      Question 2
      Should ve valuebet or induce a bluff/pot control

      I went with 2nd choice since it is more likely to get a bluff from missed FD/pay off straight if he has it than leading and possibly getting raised.

      Are you folding to a raise on the turn? I suppose not ;) , therefore there's absolutely no need/sense in potcontrolling. So I'm betting close to full pot for max value. My betsize would be $0.60.

      Vs an aggro fish that likes to bluf with busted draws that's definitely an option.
      But without reads I usually always go for value and just bet myself, somewhere around $1.15 seems good to me.
      He has some busted draws, but he also has a lot of 1pair hands he's going to check back but with which he'd call a bet.
