      1 fold, MP raises to $0,06, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0,16, 4 folds, MP calls $0,10

      Flop: 9:heart: 2:spade: J:spade: ($0,41, 2 players)
      MP checks, Hero bets $0,21, MP calls $0,21

      Turn: 3:heart: ($0,83, 2 players)

      River: 6:heart: ($0,83, 2 players)
      MP bets $0,22, Hero raises to $0,60, MP calls $0,38

      Preflop and flop is pretty std. imo.

      But I'm not really sure what to do on the turn, should we keep betting now that we have a FD. I guess most of the hands that have us beat will call again, but by checking we are setting him up to bet the river and unless we hit we can't really call.

      Hello,

      Preflop I like 3betting but you should make it at least 3x. I personally make it $0.2 here.

      On this flop I prefer checking back. It his his calling range quite a lot, so there's no need to bet here.

      As played on the flop, we improved on the turn so I'd bet here.

      On the river I actually prefer shoving to maximize our value. I don't think his range would differ a lot if we raise $0.6 and if we shove, so I'd just go for a shove.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Ain't a shove a bit too aggressive? I mean what can he really call with here, I guess he folds most hands like JT, QJ, A9, K9, I really only see him calling with hands like AJ, J9 or a weaker flush.

      Obv I can be wrong, but what range do you expect him to pay off with when we shove the river?

      Well, I expect him to call with any top pair here, and probably 9x is folding anyways.

      Also, I don't really expect the guy to raise preflop with hands like K9/J9 so basically he doesn't really has much 9x combos.
      Also, some slowplayed sets or hands like QQ are calling for sure
