      SB: $86.39 (172.8 bb)
      Hero (BB): $75.44 (150.9 bb)
      MP: $71.44 (142.9 bb)
      CO: $66.15 (132.3 bb)
      BTN: $53.60 (107.2 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7 8
      MP raises to $1.50, 2 folds, SB calls $1.25, Hero calls $1

      Flop: ($4.50) T 9 8 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, MP bets $3.37, SB folds, Hero raises to $9.50, MP calls $6.13

      Turn: ($23.50) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $16.50, MP raises to $60.44 and is all-in, Hero calls $43.94

      River: ($144.38) 5 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Preflop: Being deep w MP[strong range] and with a caller oop [strong range too] I think I have enough pot/implied odds to call
      Flop: I prefer x/r rather than donking here cause I will be able to extract more from TP/overpairs if they decide to stay and also generate more FE for later streets + trapping SB if he's calling cbet
      Sizing: I think I should have raised slightly more here being deep - like 11?
      Turn:Not the best card but he still has flush draws,overpairs,unlikely two pair,maybe pair+draw like KT,, very rarely sets, so really against anything in his range besides turned straight I have both lots of EQ and FE.
      Sizing:I guess I should have bet bigger here too in order to commit myself cause now it seems close to me between fold/call

      Info: both players are unknown - SB seems like a weak reg and MP is 30/20 over 120h haven't seen him doing smth way off

      Hey Lucker9200,

      Preflop call is fine with suited-connector multiway.

      Flop check-raise is fine. Flatting might be slightly better since open-raiser is MP and may not be cbetting this board that light.

      Betting again on turn is fine, villain may be able to make a tight laydown on this 4-to-straight board.

      When you get raised on the the turn, the overwhelming likelihood is that villain has a straight. It means you effectively no longer have a monster draw, just a naked 8-high flush raw. You need 30% equity to make the call. You probably have 18%.
