      PokerStars - $0.02 NL - Holdem - 8 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG+1: $0.77
      MP: $1.34
      MP+1: $1.99
      CO: $4.35
      BTN: $1.84
      SB: $3.99
      Hero (BB): $3.18
      UTG: $0.80

      SB posts SB $0.01, Hero posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has 5:spade: 8:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, SB calls $0.01, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.04, 2 players) 8:club: 7:spade: 5:heart:
      SB bets $0.02, Hero raises to $0.10, SB raises to $0.18, Hero calls $0.08

      Turn: ($0.40, 2 players) 9:diamond:
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.28, SB calls $0.28

      River: ($0.96, 2 players) 5:diamond:
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.50, SB calls $0.50

      I don't really think I could fold the flop given the odds I was getting. On the turn the check just felt very weak after he 3bet me on the turn, so I decided to go for a bet/fold. On the river I make pretty much the nuts, so betting is pretty simple :f_biggrin:

      Should I just check behind on the turn? Or is bet/fold fine? If betting is fine, is the bet sizing good? Same on river, should I have bet more?

      I'm going for stacks on flop, you don't want see 4 or 9 on turn.

      as played: I don't like river bet size, every 6 will pay muuuuuuch more. 75% of pot or even more

      Hello TinoLaan,

      Flop: Playing for the stacks will definitely be an overplay here. Therefore at the best we could consider taking the way ahead/behind situation and just Calling as you did.

      As played
      Turn: There ain't many worse hands which pay you here, rather just Check it behind.

      As played
      River: Dependent how loose I see the guy we might even consider sometimes shoving here. But I would definitely go for bigger Bet.

      Best Regards.
