      SB: $49.50 (99 bb)
      Hero (BB): $50 (100 bb)
      UTG: $50.86 (101.7 bb)
      MP: $110.91 (221.8 bb)
      CO: $88.71 (177.4 bb)
      BTN: $71.67 (143.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7 7
      UTG raises to $1.50, MP folds, CO calls $1.50, 2 folds, Hero calls $1

      Flop: ($4.75) 6 4 7 (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($4.75) 8 (3 players)
      Hero bets $2.97, UTG raises to $8.50, CO folds, Hero calls $5.53

      River: ($21.75) T (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $9.50, Hero calls $9.50

      $40.75 pot ($2.65 rake)
      Final Board: 6 4 7 8 T
      Hero mucked 7 7 and lost (-$19.50 net)
      UTG showed 9 T and won $38.10 ($18.60 net)

      Vilain is a regular 19/15 2,8 AF, RFI UTG 18
      On the turn I decide to call since I have the odds and he can bluff sometimes. I don't think he has a five here very often.
      On the river I think I can't fold a set versus this sizing.

      Hi Doberman,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Given the board texture and that we are 3-handed i don't mind donking here for pure value. UTG, the PFR, is caught between two guys so he may not bluff often. Although if CO is aggro I don't mind going for a ck/raise but we don't have any info posted on him.

      As played what do you think you beat on the river? I doubt that sizing is a bluff often enough. Do you expect him to raise hearts on the turn and then less than half pot river?
