      (Pre 50%, Flop 51.7%, Turn 50.0%)

      Hero wins $3.25
      CO wins $3.25


      Should I bet more on this flop? Something like $0,80?

      Is the correct line on this turn bet/fold? Since we have 2 players one of them might have FH.

      River is the worse. C/f the only line? I don't like bet/folding because even flush got here and since he called 2 streets he might have TT, J9, Jx or any flush. Honestly I wasn't putting him on flush, but was hoping to see c-c.

      Please write whether you see some alternative lines for this kind of hand when our hand loses so much strength with every next street.

      Bet bigger flop & turn, river is the worst so c/f there, betting there is bluff which can be worth considering because we don't really beat anything there apart from another unlikely flop straight. Bluff could fold out 9x or flush.

      You could make it slightly bigger on the flop (0.75) and again make it about 75%-80% pot on the turn. Turn should be a b/f imo, players won´t bluffraise very often here on micros or raise worse for value, but I don't think you're going to get raised very often, I think sets would usually raise the flop.

      River nothing you can do, worst card in the deck, c/f.

      There might be some QQ, KK (usually 3b us preflop so not so likely I agree). There might be some Tx hands or some lower PP that we beat. Problem with betting here is amount. If we go for super small bet any flush is calling and if we go for bigger we fold hands which beats us but more often we're faced with raise-shove and we can't call. While playing I really took time for this table and I'm still not sure what's the best continuation here. I'm still for c/f river.

      Tnx for your time :)
