      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with 9, 9.
      Hero raises to $0.08, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.08, 2 folds, BU calls $0.08, SB folds, BB calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.33) 6, J, 4 (4 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.18, MP2 calls $0.18, BU calls $0.18, BB folds.

      Turn: ($0.87) 6 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 checks, BU checks.

      River: ($0.87) 9 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.62, MP2 folds, BU calls $0.31.

      Final Pot: $1.8.
      Results follow:

      BU shows a full-house, jacks full of sixes(J J).
      Hero shows a full-house, nines full of sixes(9 9).

      BU wins with a full-house, jacks full of sixes(J J).

      Villains were unknowns but by the few hands they played, all seemed loose passive, the button one seemed a bit tighter but again passive type

      on flop I cbet as a semi bluff hoping to take the pot down, yet still think Im in good shape if I get called to try and see showdown, if any of these guys would raise me Id fold
      on river I hit full house and bet for value, hopefully to get called if they slowplayed their flush on the turn...

      was my play ok here?

      Bigger flop bet about 70-90% pot

      On turn 6x made trips , tp still beats us and fd arrived, c/f is perfect

      On river relative size is ok, obviously b/p , every flush raises, and every 6x jx calls which were scared on turn.

      Hi Lavek,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Why do you consider your hand a semibluff? We don't have a draw and we only have 2 outs so it can't really be a semibluff. It's either a thin value bet or a bluff.

      Considering we are playing versus 4 people the chance that our hand is best is minimal so I would just check here with the intention of folding.

      As played checking turn with the intention of folding is fine and river looks good.

      yeah, I guess it was more as a thin value then, thanks for input
