      Hi Bogdan from way hand was played I think it looks like utg called preflop and flop with small pair and was set mining or ATs+ with back door flush draw.

      From river if he had set then he would have bet as on turn it went check check, so he either still has small under pair to board or he's got a busted backdoor FD.

      So on river I would assume my 99 is best hand and bet small to get him to call so can get a little value from hand.

      Think half pot size would do it, wouldnt let him see showdown for free.

      Hello Bogdan1190,

      Preflop: Well, you could even isolate but of course just limping in ain't wrong either while there are couple of opponents in the pot and we might invite some more to join.
      Postflop: If you played it passively preflop then I'd rather play it passively postflop as well and just Check it. :) Not worth the investment. As played the river you could still bet smallish like $0,20.

      Best regards.
