      Hero (SB): 196.1 BB
      BB: 10.9 BB

      Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 9:spade: 8:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to 3 BB, Hero raises to 10 BB, fold, BTN calls 7 BB

      Flop: (21 BB, 2 players) 7:diamond: 8:diamond: 8:club:
      Hero bets 10 BB, BTN raises to 20 BB, Hero calls 10 BB

      River: (127 BB, 2 players) Q:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Hero shows 9:spade: 8:spade: (Three of a Kind, Eights) (Pre 20%, Flop 88%, Turn 95%)
      BTN mucks J:club: J:diamond: (Two Pair, Jacks and Eights) (Pre 80%, Flop 12%, Turn 5%)
      Hero wins 120.7 BB

      only 80 hands on him, no much info. I cbet 50% flop to induce bluff, because in this situation is nice for bluff, I dont represent anything.
      But should I reraise his miniraise, or call so he can bluff again?
      Turn is kind of action killer, so I miniraise him, it looks like he has Ax, and I can go 50% pot size on river. But river so bad card, I was not sure if I should bet, he could easily have flush as he played.

      Hi mla,

      Preflop: looks fine.

      Flop: Considering we don't know much about villain I wouldn't assume right away that it's a bluff. He can do it for value with pairs above 8x so I wouldn't mind a small raise that could look like a 3-bet bluff, perhaps something like 37-38 BBs (or even a bit smaller).

      As played I'd think that NFDs would go broke on the turn so I wouldn't give him too many FDs in his range.

      What's your plan if he ships the river (about 1/2 pot)?

      If he goes all in river I call it for sure.

      I had 10 seconds to act, and was thinking if he could have flush, so in the end I checked in order not to make big mistake, and if I check maybe he uses situation to bluff me.

      Now when I can think about it, I would bet around 50% river, so he can call with Ax.
