      MP: $30 (60 bb)
      CO: $15 (30 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 8 8
      MP posts BB OOP, CO posts BB OOP, UTG raises to $1, MP calls $0.50, CO calls $0.50, Hero calls $1, SB calls $0.75, BB calls $0.50

      Flop: ($6) 2 8 Q (6 players)

      Turn: ($10.50) J (3 players)

      River: ($29.50) 9 (2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $19, MP calls $18 and is all-in


      Anon table.

      MP & CO both fish.

      Raise flop? We are 6way :D , but two gutshots are the only draws possible...
      I didnt like the turn, so raised for value/protection.
      River? I thought a fish would donkpush his last 18$ into the pot if he had Tx. But I beat all twopairs, and naked Qx, so I pushed for value.
      What do you think?

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      I would at least threw a small raise there. Qx hands most likely pay as they are loose enough. Though as played clearly overplayed on the turn whilst T9 gets there. :(

      Don't really like "turning hand into bluff". You can very easily just Call the turn and reevaluate the river, if his Bet size turns into bigger one we have clear information what kind of hand he has. Once we hit our FH/Quads we are able to ship it.

      Best Regards.
