      Flop is so dry I don't want to scare him away so I only call.

      Turn is somewhat dangerous since 78 got there and 99 and 66 are possible. His overbetting can't mean he has only some 9x. He can easily have 5x so we're far behind. I think folding is too weak here but going broke seems overplayed.

      River is the ugliest card we can see. His line seems logical if he has 6. I made a crying call and hoped to see 9x or 5 to split. Can he do it with 77,88,TT? Beside 6x and 99? He's probably not doing it with straight anymore?

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      Why ain't ya betting yourself while you need to even protect your hand. :)

      But about the play it's already pretty close on the turn while some draws completed, better 5x possible and also of course we are OOP. :( Sometimes vs such an overbet I might even fold right there.

      He's probably not doing it with straight anymore?

      Well, you will never know what that kind of fish thinks. :D They might even over-value their straight there.

      Best Regards.

      On the turn or you're talking about the flop? On flop I don't lead because I want to give him the chance to hit if some T, J, Q, K, A hits on turn. If I knew he was fish I would c/r him.

      Well, not really worth. Rather just Bet/Bet/Bet yourself being OOP and start building up the pot and at the same time protect your hand.
