      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with J :diamond: 9 :diamond:
      UTG checks, 2 folds, BTN raises to $0.30, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.20, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.65) 9 :club: T :diamond: 5 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.40, Hero calls $0.40

      Turn: ($1.45) 3 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.90, Hero calls $0.90

      River: ($3.25) 8 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.70, Hero calls $1.70

      This one might have been messed up or very marginal at best.

      So I decided to call him down because so far he has always 2nd barreled (but the sample size is ridiculously small) and his preflop range is very weak. I was sort of hesitating on the river but since I've heard so often that one must call the turn only if he is very likely to call the river as well in such spots I did make the crying fold in the end.

      Looking at my play critically, I probably made a hasty assumption about my opponents multibarreling tendencies from a small sample size.

      Anyway, how bad really was this? Should I have indeed had a bigger sample size before deciding to call him down?

      Hello Avatars91,

      I'd rather advice to not to play those hands, especially being OOP. You are more often putting yourself into trouble and exactly into those spots where you level yourself into calling and can't even be sure if you are ahead there or beat much. Cause I just don't see much what we beat, a lot of draws got there.

      Best Regards.

      Looking at the hand now I remember that I didn't notice the fact that UTG posted a DB instead of limping.
      Does that change the preflop decision (is calling doable then?), since we can assume that we will very often be in a multiway pot with two not so good opponents? Because I would imagine then that suited broadways could be played in that spot as well and J9s seems somewhat similar in that regard.

      I pointed out it's not about how good odds you get there but rather how good you are postflop with the hand. But which seems that you rather overvalue your hand there. :( Just beat bluff and meanwhile don't know if the guy even bluffs there.
