      UTG: $4.06 (101.5 bb)
      MP: $4 (100 bb)
      CO: $2 (50 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $4 (100 bb)
      SB: $9.01 (225.3 bb)
      BB: $5.20 (130 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 8:diamond: 8:club:
      UTG raises to $0.16, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.16, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.38) A:club: 9:club: 8:heart: (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.28, Hero calls $0.28

      Turn: ($0.94) 2:club: (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.62, Hero calls $0.62

      River: ($2.18) 6:heart: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $0.40, UTG calls $0.40

      He was kind of nitty ~12/10. My gameplan was to play c r b without any club or call call decide on club T. As played I don't see any Flush in his range it's probably Ax. He's nit so it's probably some strong ace AK-AJ. That's why I want to earn more value. What do you think about this line?

      Hello,

      Preflop calling is fine.

      On the flop I prefer raising and trying to get the money in.

      As played on the flop, calling the turn is fine.

      I do agree that betting the river is mandatory here, but I really don't like your sizing here - make it around $1.2.

      Best,
      Plamen

      1) Why would you raise r flop here?
      2) Would you change anything if he wasn't a 12/10 but 22/19 player?
      3) Do you always raise boards like A98ss, K87ss, Q54ss? Why? Why not?

      Hey,

      Basically we wan to raise here because we have a very good hand and we want to get the money in as soon as possible.
      Also the board is quite good since the ace hits his range pretty well and some of the nits have a hard time folding a hand like AQ here.
      If he was 22/19 I would raise as well.

      Basically, I would raise the mentioned boards, since they are quite draw heavy and we want to take value from draws (we are talking about having a set of course).
      Overall, we can't really say that we will raise every time - it quite much depends on the opponent too but raising any board with a set won't be a mistake.
