      BTN: $15.35 (95.9 bb)
      SB: $13.89 (86.8 bb)
      BB: $19.95 (124.7 bb) 50/17/1.2/0.0/60/18
      Hero (UTG): $17.54 (109.6 bb) 22/17/5.0/25.0/17/18
      MP: $16 (100 bb)
      CO: $15.19 (94.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with 7 8
      Hero raises to $0.48, MP folds, CO calls $0.48, BTN calls $0.48, SB folds, BB calls $0.32

      Flop: ($2) 9 6 T (4 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.44, 2 folds, BB calls $1.44

      Turn: ($4.88) 3 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $4, BB calls $4

      River: ($12.88) J (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $11.62 and is all-in, BB folds

      Should the river perhaps be checked behind since only flushes will call me and everything folds? Or is a half pot sized bet/fold a better way to go?

      Considering the fact that board is super connected and that there are 4 people in the pot we can pot this flop (as opposed to betting <3/4). Their range for continuing would not change much.

      Turn looks fine but could also be a spot for overbet shove (even though we are a bit deep) IF villain is a calling station (which is something that we may not know at this point).

      The river is a big scare card so I'd prefer a smaller value bet and we can even bet/fold something like 5-6 because we can't really expect this villain to turn a made hand into a minraise bluff on river.
