      BB shows J:heart: T:heart:
      (Pre 64%, Flop 35.2%, Turn 36.4%)

      Hero shows 8:diamond: 9:diamond:
      (Pre 36%, Flop 64.8%, Turn 63.6%)

      Hero wins $6.96

      I don't bet more flop because I want to get called also with overcards not only FD, GS and one pair hands.

      On turn I decide for bigger bet so if ugly river comes I can just c behind. Is this thinking -EV? Is it clear to see what am I doing?

      River is one of the best cards so I think I have to vbet. I go for smaller bet to get called by any 9x and good 8x hands. If we get raised here we insta fold it? T9 and QJ are the most obvious hands but since we have 2 pair him having T8/T9 is less likely. I think I would still call some minr which is probably bad but there aren't that many hands that crush us.

      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop I prefer betting $0.5.

      Checking behind the turn will be very bad here. We have an easy bet here for value and it's not even close.

      Betting the river is fine as well. He could call us with some Tx/9x.
      If he raises I think we have an easy fold.
