      not too happy about it but I Call.

      Flush Draws are busted, we do beat random KX hands and I am not really putting him on AK or K9. We lose to a couple of 9X hands and maybe this guy may try to valuebet T8s. If he bets halfpot i would be more inclined to call. Against such a bet size the decision is much closer. We need to win about 30% of the time and I think he has a random busted draw approximately 25-35% of the time, depending on his pre-flop range.

      With more specific reads about this guy being tighter preflop (so he wouldn't have so many suited hands) and also more passive postflop (so he doesn't bet randomly with twopair or turn stuff into bluffs here), I would fold.

      I'd bet bigger the flop ~0,5 and then bet/fold turn to get free showdown

      Hello JayyRoc,

      Welcome to the NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      If you want to do anything at all here than rather Bet the turn for protection from FD and maybe even gain value from some pair+draw type of hand than hero-call the river without even knowing the opponent. :)

      Best Regards.
