      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: $6.08
      UTG: $2.13
      UTG+1: $2.31
      Hero (MP): $2.22
      MP+1: $0.77
      CO: $4.30
      BTN: $2.02
      SB: $2.11

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has J:club: J:spade:

      fold, UTG+1 calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.10, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, UTG+1 calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.23, 2 players) A:diamond: A:heart: 9:club:
      UTG+1 checks, Hero checks

      Turn: ($0.23, 2 players) 8:heart:
      UTG+1 bets $0.16, Hero calls $0.16

      River: ($0.55, 2 players) 9:diamond:
      UTG+1 bets $0.39, Hero?

      Villain was quite loose, playing roughly 50% of hands.
      [F] Checked back for pot control, wished I'd just fired flop to avoid difficult decision.
      [T] Think I'm probably still good to call
      [R] Bleugh, all I can beat is a bluff, to call or not to call?

      Hello Raknyo,

      Rather CB the flop than turn your hand into bluff-catcher like that. You just cause yourself such a spot and it's really up to you how you see him, do you think he is capable of bluffing or not. Would he even bet with Kx on the river?

      Best Regards.
