      Flop: I would bet the Flop. I think you must bet here with 2 overs + backdoor FD + gutshot. Even if he doesn't fold, we can always barrel future streets. The weaker his Flop calling range is, the weaker his Turn range will be.

      As played

      Turn: I don't mind raising, we have some value from draws and 3X. I don't think he has 89 too often so I'm not too worried about that. Besides his bet size is on the smaller side which makes me think he is less likely to have 8X.
