      BTN: $13 (65 bb)
      SB: $20.14 (100.7 bb)
      BB: $20.31 (101.5 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $21.70 (108.5 bb)
      MP: $20.54 (102.7 bb)
      CO: $20.50 (102.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with 8 9
      Hero raises to $0.80, MP calls $0.80, 3 folds, BB calls $0.60

      Flop: ($2.50) 7 9 A (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.58, MP folds, BB calls $1.58

      Turn: ($5.66) 8 (2 players)
      BB bets $3, Hero raises to $19.32 and is all-in

      Open-raised 98s because the guys behind me were quite tight (all less than 23/20 and not 3bet happy) and the players in the blinds were kinda bad.
      BB is playing 29/16 for 150 hands who was folding to cbet 38(8)
      [[so I kind of expect him to d/c with this range TT-77,AJs-A9s,JTs,T9s,98s,87s,76s,65s,AQo-AJo,JTo against which I have an ok push] Is it realistic?

      Hello Lucker9200,

      That's the fact for you to think when raising such hands cause you may often times put yourself into those spots where you practically just don't know where you stand.

      Though vs his donking range we can assume that we ain't going to do very good unless we assume he is rather loose. You didn't even put into his range no AK/AQ type of hands so the range becomes really capped. Also I wouldn't exclude from his range 2pair combos as A7/A8 or whatsoever.

      Which would us lead to the case where we actually are getting near break-even equity if we adding into his range that kind of range and maybe even towards stronger range more often. So we might even go for way ahead/behind and reevaluate the river instead shipping the money, he ain't shoving the river or betting strong with total air.

      Best Regards.
