      River: ($15.25) 2:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Unknown. Probably regs.

      Preflop: Do you squeeze here? I`m ahead of their ranges, but i expect to get called alot this deep and postflop will suck, unless i hit a set.

      Postflop. I think leading this flop is best. I don`t wan`t to ch/c OOP, because my opponents will be able to play very well against me (my range will be capped and they can barrel or value bet me easily). With a lead i can get value from worse hands and avoid giving them free cards.

      I think i can bet the turn for value again.

      On the river? I`m not sure if i can bet for value again. I think i have the best hand almost always (only JJ beats me), but i`m not sure if he will call a bet with 87/89/99 etc. And i decided to ch/c. Maybe another option would be to bet smth. like 4$-5$ and call a raise?

      Hi Achilles,

      Preflop: 3-betting is an option to build up the pot now for when we hit and also gain initiative. Most people play very fit/fold this deep so we shouldn't have too many problems picking up pots postflop.

      Postflop: As played, without any info I don't mind your line and I think that river can be a bet as well, especially since the draws missed and 8x will have a hard time folding (and 99).
