      Hey,

      You have 20 hands, don't draw rash conclusions.

      Flop I prefer cbetting A9 with BD, you can make him fold good equity and also bluff him later on quite a few runouts. After you check, I think you have the best hand so often that it's best to just flat his turn minbet. A9 should win often, otherwise it's even better to bluff it starting from the flop.

      River call seems quite spewy to me. You basically assume he has T9 only in his range, otherwise, you don't beat anything else. Your play would make more sense against someone you have a better read on about river tendencies and about minbetting range.

      Good point. The only problem is if I call 1 bb - they often bet bigger next street. But since I called him this time on river, it would be even better to call 2 bets and keep pot small than raise and call so I like it.
