      Half expected him to show me a flush on this river, worth the call?

      The way I thought about it he didn't bet the flop or turn himself. He did raise the turn but that doesn't shout out a flush draw to me.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      BB:
      $3.03
      MP3:
      $4.08
      Hero:
      $7.41

      0.03/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Results follow (highlight to see):

      BB shows (9s 8h)

      Hero wins with a pair of tens (Tc 9c)

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: I'd prefer to isolate here rather than limp in. He has a big stack enough to do that.

      As played
      Postflop: Not a huge fan of Calling the river, it's pure hero-call there and only with expectations or reads I would have done that. Especially against pot size bet. Of course his line doesn't make sense but still couple of draws completed on the river which he could Check/Raise on the turn.

      Best Regards.
