      Preflop: Hero is CO with 7, 7.
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.16, BU folds, SB calls $0.14, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.36) 6, 8, T (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.32, SB calls $0.32.

      Turn: ($1) 9 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.71, SB calls $0.71.

      River: ($2.42) 3 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $2.42.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a straight, ten high(7s 7d).
      SB shows two pairs, tens and nines(9s Ts).

      Hero wins with a straight, ten high(7s 7d).


      Once he checks the river here I should have bet for value right? What would be an appropriate size to bet here?

      Hello numbnutter,

      I'd most likely Bet 1/2 pot size or something similar. Since it's already for him to really hard to Call there while flush & straight are possible.

      Best Regards.
