      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      On the flop I like cbetting here.
      There are better hands that would fold - such as pocket pairs, also we would love to pick up the pot against his 87 and even if we get called we still have some equity.

      Turn doesn't really help us so checking is fine.

      As played, I think betting the river is fine.
      When he minraises it is really close. If you think he's betting KJ/QJ on the turn I would rather fold here.
      Overall, given the fact that he is fishy plus the good odds I would really say that I hate calling.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hi.

      river is more of a call.

      small raise is good for 2 reasons
      1) better odds to call, we only need to be good 18.6% of the time
      2) it's likelier that he may raise KJ QJ for thin value. He may also have AT or T9.

      It gets really tough with T9, and I think with a set we may be closer to a fold since we lose to straights too.

      Thanks.
