      1)PreFlp being IP vs 42/0/2/12 vpip/pfr/Af/hands I decided to IsOr.
      2)On this dry flop I cbet to take the pot and with the plan to continue aggression if a T+ card appears or my hand improve.
      3)On turn my hand improve so I bet again for value and to protect vs overcards.I am not sure if 9 is agood card. I extract value from 8x but also are some hands that improves 67;89
      4)On river I decided to chkb because I bet for value 2 streets and I don't see any weak card that could call me.

      Hey MeAmor22,

      Hand looks ok.

      You should usually only cbet the flop here with T-high if villain has shown a tendency to fold to cbets, otherwise you much rather cbet with A-high or not at all.

      Betting again for value when you turn top pair is. I think enough worse hands are calling. 8x, gutshots, flush-draws etc.

      I like the river check back, flush-draws miss, and I don't see much worse calling on 4-to-straight board.
