      NL Holdem $0.02(BB) Replayer
      SB ($4.94)
      BB ($0.80)
      CO ($0.73)
      Hero ($2)

      Dealt to Hero 7:spade: 9:spade:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.08, SB calls $0.07, fold

      FLOP ($0.18) 8:spade: T:diamond: Q:diamond:

      SB checks, Hero checks

      TURN ($0.18) 8:spade: T:diamond: Q:diamond: J:diamond:

      SB bets $0.18, Hero...

      SB was 49/0 over 45.

      I checked the flop because I thought that was a dangerous board and I would not make him fold. Should have made a cbet for semi-bluff?

      is it right to raise on the turn? chances are that I may be splitting the pot against a 9x or losing against a higher straight or a flush. maybe it's better to stay on the safe side?

      Hello MancaMulas,

      Nah, raising is out of question here. He isn't going to pay you with a lot worse hands anyways here. The question rather is here if we should even continue or not? He is even potting it and flushes are possible and obviously for us it's maybe at the best a split with 9x, we wont be able to Call the river pot size bet again and usually people do the mistake.

      So to avoid any cruel mistakes on the river and if you ain't able to fold it there fold it right on the turn. :) Or Call once and reevaluate it on the river.

      Best Regards.
