      Flop bet was smaller than usual as its a safe board.
      I bet Turn for thin value.
      Good river fold?

      Hi Matt,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: What do we know about SB?

      Is he a fish or reg?

      Flop looks fine but the turn should be a larger bet as that T brings in a few draws.

      And river is really villain dependent because that 8 doesn't change a lot other than K8 or 98 got there. We also get roughly 29-30% pot odds so we only have to be good less than 1 in 3 so if villain is a bit aggro or valuebets light I'd call. Versus unknown it's closer to a fold.
