      no hud, speed.
      UTG unknown (probably bad)
      SB solid reg (26/19)

      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($10.46)
      Hero ($12)
      UTG ($4.66)
      UTG+1 ($3.18)
      CO ($9.93)
      BTN ($10.02)

      Dealt to Hero 9:heart: 8:heart:

      UTG raises to $0.30, fold, fold, fold, SB calls $0.25, Hero calls $0.20

      FLOP ($0.90) 8:spade: A:heart: J:heart:

      SB checks, Hero checks, UTG bets $0.90, SB calls $0.90, Hero calls $0.90

      TURN ($3.60) 8:spade: A:heart: J:heart: 4:heart:

      SB checks, Hero checks, UTG checks

      RIVER ($3.60) 8:spade: A:heart: J:heart: 4:heart: T:club:

      SB bets $3.60, Hero raises to $10.80 (AI), UTG folds, SB calls $5.66 (AI)

      Hero shows 9:heart: 8:heart:
      (Pre 41%, Flop 49.5%, Turn 100.0%)

      SB shows A:diamond: T:spade:
      (Pre 59%, Flop 50.5%, Turn 0.0%)

      Hero wins $20.65


      Preflop is an ok call I think. We're 3 way and might hit sth good. Also have the position on better player.

      Flop is weird. Why would he bet so strong (I know they don't think that way but anyway) but after SB caller I somehow found a call. I'm still not totally sure whether it is good or bad. There might be some :heart: blockers in opp hands but we have 9+3 outs (probably around 11-12).
      SB probably has some Ax and utg might have Jx or also some Ax (my argument while playing).

      T is very good card. I don't think there is much value in donking since I can get UTG money even if he c behind T.

      R is very tricky but in the end I decide he can have KQ, AJ, AT, A8 hands and just shove over him. Is this kind of bet always flush when we're facing good player? Is cold calling with 9 high flush better?

      Hello,

      I prefer folding preflop. We have UTG raise, who will have rather strong range, SB caller who has strong calling range as well. In addition, we are in a sandwich and we have a dominated hand so I would just fold this.

      On the flop calling against the pot size bet is fine.

      On the turn checking is good.

      As played, without information I would just call on the river.
      I really doubt that he'd going to bet pot size and call a shove with a hand like two pair here.

      Best,
      Plamen
