      PartyGaming - $0.10 NL (6 max) FAST - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BTN): 193.2 BB
      SB: 67.7 BB
      BB: 131.8 BB
      UTG: 439.5 BB
      MP: 450 BB
      CO: 100 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has 8:spade: Q:club:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 2 BB, SB calls 1.5 BB, fold

      Flop: ($0.50, 2 players) 9:spade: 4:diamond: K:spade:
      SB checks, Hero bets 3.6 BB, SB calls 3.6 BB

      Turn: ($1.22, 2 players) Q:diamond:
      SB checks, Hero bets 8.7 BB, SB calls 8.7 BB

      River: ($2.96, 2 players) 6:heart:

      Is it ok bet turn for free showdown? I think he has more often here flush draw and weaker than Q than he has Kx.

      Hey mlatasrb,

      Preflop: I don't like the minraise here with the weak hand if SB is a fish. If he is a tight regular type player than it's fine.

      AS played turn is a bit thin so I'd bet smaller at 1/2 pot or so. We want to keep villains 9x/TT/JJ type hands in. And on the river the ck back is fine.

      Ok, thanks for advice. I thought I should always open 2BB from bu for deception.
      Do you think a fish will call less often from blinds if I open raise from bu 3BB? Is that your point? Or I should simply fold with such a hand if there is fish in blinds?
