      CO ($5.31)
      Hero ($8.92)

      Dealt to Hero Q:spade: A:spade:

      UTG raises to $0.10, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.35, fold, fold, UTG calls $0.25

      FLOP ($0.77) 8:heart: 9:club: T:spade:

      UTG checks, Hero bets $0.35, UTG raises to $0.70, Hero calls $0.35

      TURN ($2.17) 8:heart: 9:club: T:spade: 5:club:

      UTG bets $0.55, Hero calls $0.55

      RIVER ($3.27) 8:heart: 9:club: T:spade: 5:club: 2:spade:

      UTG bets $0.55, Hero folds

      UTG wins $3.06

      It feels that i outstayed my welcome in the hand. In hindsight taking the freecard then folding the turn without improvement seems wiser especially since my Q outs are very much in question. He never managed to fold once against me despite his 40% ftcb.

      Hi Dracsharp,

      Preflop: looks good. Since it's a min raise and we are deeper I don't mind 3-betting. If we get 4-bet we would have to let the hand go (unless it's small).

      Flop: I don't mind the bet on the flop to get him to fold small pairs and then we can usually take a free card on the turn if we wish to do so.

      As played I wouldn't call despite our backdoor flush and gutshot.
      Bet/folding is fine.
