      Hero bets 4 BB, MP calls 4 BB

      River: (39.5 BB, 2 players) 5:heart:
      Hero checks, MP checks

      Hero shows 8:diamond: 9:diamond: (Two Pair, Nines and Fives) (Pre 38%, Flop 75%, Turn 86%)
      MP shows K:club: A:club: (One Pair, Fives) (Pre 62%, Flop 25%, Turn 14%)
      Hero wins 37.54 BB


      What do you think about cbet 1/2 to induce float and bluff on turn. Fold if he bets river?

      Hi.

      I would just recommend having a balanced bet size here and personally I would just bet 5 into 7.5 BB pot on this texture given starting positions.

      Of course if opponent is pretty bad then you can try manipulating your opponent with explotive bet sizing but I generally recommend having more balanced bet sizes in the more common spots (preflop and flop)
