      On the flop I have top pair so I call his bet.

      On the turn I get some extra equity from the gutshot and the plan in my head is to raise if he bets and see where I am.

      By the river I feel that I am folding to any bet there but I make two pair but any six gives him a straight.

      Hands that I am loosing to: any 6-x such as 87,67,97, 88,55,44, but I am also beating most of his Jx, and overpairs given he wouldnt raise them preflop.

      I feel I am commited to call there. Can I bet for value?

      Hello,

      I'd only raise here preflop if both SB and BB are very tight.

      Calling the flop is fine here. What's your plan for the later streets here?

      I don't like raising the turn here. I don't think that worse hands will call us here, so I'd rather call here and plan to fold the river if he bets.

      As played, I'm not really sure about the call on the river and I think we can make a tight fold here without any information.

      Best,

      Both blinds are folding there 85%+ thus the raise.

      On plan regarding later posts please read above on the initial post.

      Best,
