      0,10/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 8:spade: , A:club:
      MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0,25, Hero raises to $1,20, 2 folds, BB calls $0,95, MP3 folds.

      Flop: ($2,75) 7:diamond: , 8:club: , Q:spade: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      I have an opponent who is aware of my game for the last hour. He likes to act fancy when i cbet. I have a hand that might be best at showdown, so i think this time it's best to try and get there cheaply.

      Turn: ($2,75) 5:spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $2, Hero calls $2,00.

      I expected him to bet any turn, so nothing special here.

      River: ($6,75) 5:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $4,50, Hero calls $4,50.

      River is a blank. He turned a straigth or is bluffing here. Because he likes to play fancy i assume bluffing is more likely.

      Final Pot: $15,75

      I am aware that I made it difficult for my self by playing this not so standard. Any other thoughts?
