      BB = 22/19/5/6/20/67 hands
      CO = unknown

      Preflop: Standard for value.

      Flop: Plan is x/f F and re-eval T if I get there. I don't think that I can extract value esp' vs two players.

      Turn: Expecting BB to bet the turn with a made hand and don't expect CO the x/beh any Tx on the F, so i would expect both villains to have some 9x,5x draws and various smaller PP's, however I guess I could bet the T here for some thin value from 5x, weaker PP or draws, but plan was to contninue to x/f the T. Is this too weak??

      River: River completes some straights and 77's although some straight possibilities are reduced since I block with 88's. I think I can either x/f R or bet/fold for thin value from some A-hi, K-hi, 5x, 7x or some smaller PP.

      Opted to bet/fold. What do you think about the sizing here? I wanted to make it super value tastic :f_biggrin: . I didn't expect CO to bluff raise me a lot despite my sizing but the BB might aggressive or observant enough to do this.

      I like your pre-flop raise and c/f flop. Since it got checked around I think you often have there best hand and therefor should bet for value. c/f seems too weak that spot and c/c would put you difficult spot on the river since there are a lot of scary cards. This value on the river is fine- don´t think you get raised there almost never and sometimes they would call you down with A7 or 66

      best regards,
