      saw flop | [color:#C00000]saw showdown[/color]

      Button ($12.51)
      SB ($1.90)
      BB [color:#C00000]Hero ($1.85)[/color]
      UTG ($3.86)
      UTG+1 ($9)
      MP ($10.03)
      MP ($10.52)
      CO-1 [color:#C00000]CO-1 ($14.04)[/color]
      CO ($15.10)

      Preflop: Hero is in the BB with K :club: 5 :spade:
      4 folds, CO-1 calls 0.10, 3 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop (0.25) 8 :heart: 7 :heart: 9 :diamond:
      Hero checks, CO-1 checks.

      Turn (0.25) 6 :spade:
      Hero checks, CO-1 checks.

      River (0.25) A :club:
      Hero checks, CO-1 bets 0.20, Hero calls 0.20

      Hero shows K :club: 5 :spade:
      CO-1 shows T :diamond: A :spade:

      CO-1 wins 0.65 with A straight, Ten high

      As you see, i didn't raise my straight, since i feared the better one with the ten. Should i always raise here or better trust my (not really good developed) "reads"?

      well, you should bet turn and push to any resistance)

      your straight is weak, but you are facing only one opponent (MP3 open limper) and your stack is only 18BB. No reasons to be careful, bet it till the end.
