      Titan Poker Linton 0.10/0.20, hand converted by the iPoker Converter at Talking-Poker

      saw flop | [color:#C00000]saw showdown[/color]

      Button ($3.10)
      SB ($20.85)
      BB ($16.80)
      UTG ($21.09)
      UTG+1 ($16.77)
      MP ($3.76)
      MP ($3.70)
      MP ($21.94)
      CO-1 [color:#C00000]CO-1 ($28.49)[/color]
      CO [color:#C00000]Hero ($19.34)[/color]

      Preflop: Hero is in the CO with A :diamond: T :diamond:
      2 folds, MP calls 0.20, 2 folds, CO-1 calls 0.20, Hero raises to 1, 4 folds, CO-1 calls 0.80.

      Flop (2.50) 6 :heart: 8 :diamond: 7 :spade:
      CO-1 checks, Hero bets 1.50, CO-1 calls 1.50.

      Turn (5.50) A :heart:
      CO-1 checks, Hero bets 3, CO-1 calls 3.

      River (11.50) 5 :diamond:
      CO-1 bets 3, Hero calls 3

      It's kind of obvious what villain has but I still should call the river?

      The way I would play this hand depends a lot of the kind of opponent you were playing against: against a good player (who doesn't call the flop with a straight draw), I would check the turn to induce him to bluff on the river.

      Against a standard player, raise more pre-flop($1.20), raise more on the flop (70% of the pot on such a spot), raise more on the turn. And fold the river: he wants you to call, he certainly had the 9, or he misplayed A6,A7,A8 or a set

      I think one may make a case for a check behind on this flop, as it hits a large portion of villains range. If you bet, you should bet more as the board is 3connected. On the turn, I'd bet ~ 4$. On the river, I'd also call - you are not often winning, but the pot odds are too good to fold.
