      Hey Gonchan,

      Preflop call is fine.

      Flop - hand is a little weak to flat call imo especially against an opponent with reasonably high turn barrel. Raise as a bluff probably fine (although you may be able to construct a slightly stronger bluff raising range on this board than 9h8h so folding is fine.)

      Turn - If the flop was dry your line is reasonable on the turn vs an opponent with these stats. I don't like it on this texture because it's harder for you to represent sets that would have raised on the flop. Value range is narrow, Kx only. Even Kx you may have raised IP on the flop given board texture. If you want to bluff on this texture you should do it on the flop.

      River....Ideally you wouldn't ever be in this situation, I'd just give up. If you did bluff, you are never folding a Kx or a boat so why not bet really small to fold out any diamond draws or straight draws.
