      Don´t really like your pf call. You´re oop and if you hit A your hand might be dominated.

      You get just over 1:3 to make the call, SH, with position on the loose fish, if he was a fish. Sure, the PF aggressor has positon on you, but he is quite readable I think. With correct Post Flop play, this can be profitable...I think.

      This is an ok flop for your hand. The nine is the ideal card to pair. A call here is ok, and then when he checks behind the turn, the river practically gives you the nuts, given the action.

      I think just raise $15 on the river, he may call something a bit smaller.

      i like the riverbet amount, acid... 8$ to go for a pot of 33.25$ from a solid player screams "call me"

      and you also do not gain very much the times he does call.

      in fact, i would perhaps raise it more than 20$, because i don't see a fish differentiating between 13$ to go and 23$ to go, whilst holding a paired ace.

      I meant raise 15 instead of 20, because I definitely want a call, and maybe the slightly smaller bet may tempt him, though I see your point, a crazy bet might look more bluffy and tempt him more. In any case, 20 didn't work.

      yep, i'm just saying 15 probably didn't either.

      and if it did work, woohoo! you just won an extra 8$ @ ~25% potsize! :P


      (15$ = 8$ to go, as the villain has already put in 7$)

      Damn, you are right. I completely missed the c/r here, thought we had bet after he checked. Don't know where my head was at.

      yeah, check/raise river is quite rare here for sure (at least FROM hero); probably didn't expect it! :P

      I'd squeeze or fold preflop. Postflop, its well played.
