      I would prefer to bet smaller on the Turn. This is not a good card at all for our range. I still think we can go for value, but I would size it maybe 1.20-1.40.

      On the River, I Think we should just c/f. We lose to straights and flushes. You need him to turn some 8X hand into a bluff here for a c/c to be good. but almost everything got there. Despite the small bet I just don't see ourselves being ahead very often now. T9 got there, JT or J9 would probably check, 76 and 86 are most consistent with this bet size on the River. You'll also see the occasional flush like you did here, betting small to lure you in but I think this looks like a straight most of the time.
