      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has T:diamond: A:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, MP+1 calls 1 BB, fold, Hero raises to 6 BB, fold, BB calls 5 BB, MP+1 calls 5 BB

      Flop: ($0.37, 3 players) 8:spade: Q:diamond: Q:spade:
      BB bets 3 BB, MP+1 calls 3 BB, Hero calls 3 BB

      Turn: ($0.55, 3 players) J:spade:
      BB bets 4 BB, MP+1 calls 4 BB, Hero calls 4 BB

      River: ($0.79, 3 players) 9:spade:
      BB bets 4 BB, MP+1 raises to 50 BB, Hero raises to 87 BB and is all-in, BB calls 3 BB and is all-in, MP+1 calls 37 BB

      The players seemed quite weak. Considering the small bets on flop and turn, I decided to call, as I have some outs left. On the river, the raise made me suspicious, he could have made his straight flush, or a house. I considered calling instead of pushing. Or even folding? Whats the best line here?

      Preflop raising is fine.

      I don't really like calling the flop. We only have some backdoors, but there's a pair on the board and it would be even harder to extract value and also could run into full house.

      As played on the flop, calling turn is fine.

      I prefer folding the river. I just don't see him raising anything worse here - Ts beats us, also quite a lot of full houses.
