      BB: 100 BB (VPIP: 18.98, PFR: 16.10, 3Bet Preflop: 6.56, Hands: 829)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 9:spade: 9:diamond:

      fold, Hero raises to 2 BB, SB calls 1.5 BB, BB raises to 10 BB, Hero calls 8 BB, SB calls 8 BB

      Flop: (30 BB, 3 players) A:diamond: 6:diamond: 7:heart:
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero checks

      Turn: (30 BB, 3 players) 8:spade:
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero checks

      River: (30 BB, 3 players) 5:heart:
      SB bets 17 BB, fold, Hero calls 17 BB

      SB shows 9:club: T:club: (Straight, Ten High) (Pre 39%, Flop 26%, Turn 97%)
      Hero mucks 9:spade: 9:diamond: (Straight, Nine High) (Pre 61%, Flop 74%, Turn 3%)
      SB wins 60.8 BB


      I guess there is no need to raise river since I never get called by worse?

      Hey Gingerkid,

      Preflop is not necessarily a standard call, but can be made if it 's likely SB will tag along.

      Vs double-check on turn I think betting small for protection is fine.

      As to whether you raise the river, depends on your perception of villain. If he will never call with 2pair or worse straight then there is no point to raising. Vs a fish you can sometimes raise small for value.

      I dont get your point of betting turn to protect? You mean, to protect mostly from BB if he has KQ, KJ, QJ? I think he would cbet with those hands, of not flop then surelly turn once we all check. So I put him on JJ-KK when he plays that way, and planing to fold vs any bet from him.

      Maybe he'd cbet, maybe not when multi-way. I don't think he necessarily bets the turn as a bluff just because it gets checked round either. He might bet KK-JJ for protection on this texture though.

      Usually vs double-check neither player has much. Ok, SB has the nuts in this case, but often this will get donked. There is a decent chance you have the best hand and can fold out opponents' equity share of up to 4 over cards while occasionally getting called by worse draws that were turned, or worse pairs that want to bluff-catch. If you do get called by better you have equity with your draw.

      I don't think betting turn is mandatory by any means, but I think it has an all round higher expectation than checking.
