      Flop: I get minraised, I'm quite certain I'm behind. Don't think he will do this w J9 straight draw and e board is pretty much quite dry. I have lots of good Turn cards happening for me namely any heart, 7/9/J/A. I think 18 helpful cards vs 29 unhelpful ones. I am in position and I have great odds to call which I did.

      Turn: One of the best cards for me, he bets pretty big and now I'm certain I'm behind. I think I have great implied odds here so I decided to call again to draw. I don't think raising/shoving is good as I believe I have close to no fold equity and I'm certain I'm behind.

      River: Bad card and he bets small which I'm very tempted to call as I only need to be right like 15% of e time. But I really don't see much I can beat. Maybe A8 now and a busted J9 which I block e A & J card so I think it's not very likely as well.

      Hi Cheekopeh,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I'm curious as to why we call the AJ here but folded the AK on the other connected board. Is it just because we have a backdoor flush here (gets there 5% of the time at most)?

      As played I think it's a big mistake to fold that river. As mentioned before fish can raise Ax on the flop and then bet it like that, especially on the river. And there are a few semibluffs that missed too.
