      Hero (BB): $6.56 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 19, 3B: 8, AF: 3.8, Hands: 23726
      UTG: $7.81 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 17, 3B: 3, AF: 3.8, Hands: 110
      CO: $1.93 - VPIP: 39, PFR: 6, 3B: 0, AF: 5.0, Hands: 18
      BTN: $5.07 - VPIP: 25, PFR: 18, 3B: 8, AF: 0.3, Hands: 118
      SB: $3.58 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 10, 3B: 5, AF: 1.6, Hands: 231

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BB with T :club: 9 :heart:
      1 fold, CO calls $0.05, 1 fold, SB calls $0.03, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.15) 5 :spade: 8 :club: Q :diamond: (3 players)
      SB bets $0.10, Hero calls $0.10, CO folds

      Turn: ($0.35) 4 :spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.20, SB calls $0.20

      River: ($0.75) J :spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.55, SB folds

      On the flop I call with a gutshot. I'm not actually sure whether it's a great idea....perhaps it's not.

      On the turn I semi-bluff with the same gutshot. Perhaps it's not a good idea either, 67 got here.

      On the river I expected him to call me with a Q, not really sure what he had here when he folded.

      Hi german

      I prefer to raise rather than call there given how weak our draw is (of course folding is perfectly fine too given the person that is betting and fish behind us).

      As played the river bet is fine but we have to consider bet/folding.

      Hi,

      What is our goal when raising? To push him off 2nd pairs and pockets?

      How good is bluff-raising in limped pots on dry boards in general? 'Cuz I never considered this option really. I try not to bluff in such spots altogether, unless it checked around and I think it's just dead money.

      TY

      Folding would be my main plan here (as shown above) but I said that raising is better than calling. With raising we want to put pressure on his weaker made hands that bet out here. I would never aim to get him to fold 2p+ so weak Qx, 8x, and other pairs he may have.
