      BB: $5.87 (117.4 bb)
      UTG: $1.23 (24.6 bb)
      MP: $5 (100 bb)
      CO: $0.98 (19.6 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $8.07 (161.4 bb)
      SB: $2.88 (57.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 9 8
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.12, SB calls $0.10, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.29) 7 Q K (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.20, SB calls $0.20

      Turn: ($0.69) J (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.69) A (2 players)
      SB bets $0.45, Hero calls $0.45

      How you like my line?

      My oR is a bit to the looser side reason for doing it 12c

      My bet is to get better hands to fold, in this case pocket pairs, however ppl do tend to call with broadways which I'm far behind now.

      did improve here, but thought villain might trying all this with a straight, thinking if I hit a heart on river I will most likely call.

      His bet could mean many things, however is it fine to call here, can't really raise as I would only be called by better right?

      Hi Resilence,

      Preflop: looks fine on the BTN unless SB/BB are both huge fish

      Postflop: Our perceived range is strong but equity is not. SB looks fishy so he will connect somewhat with the board but I don't mind one bet there.

      As played the river call is thin because villain can easily have the Qh and even Th. This should be villain dependent so what do we know about him?
