      Continuation bet the flop, with over-cards & gut shot it seemed a good spot.

      Checked back the turn for the free card, did't want to inflate pot further after villian called on flop.

      River, I have the nuts on a board that has become a staight. Bet 40% of the pot, hoping for a re-raise or a call. Perhaps I could have bet more, villian will often not believe I have him beat here & will rarely raise?

      Final Pot: $0.90

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a straight, nine high (9h 8s)
      BB shows (3h 2h)

      Hero wins with a straight, nine high (9h 8s)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Add to full stack.

      When he is fishy enough you could even sometimes consider just shoving. If he has the straight with a hand like 8 then he will definitely Call you. Or as played I'd go for at least $0,40+.

      Best regards.
