      Hand recorder for this hand: PokerStrategy.com SideKick 1.1.417.4

      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q:club: , T:club:
      SB posts small blind ($0.01), BB posts big blind ($0.02), 2 folds, MP2 calls, MP3 folds, Hero raises for $0.10, 3 folds, MP2 calls

      Flop: ($0.23 - 11.50 bb) 9:club: , 7:spade: , 6:spade: (2 Players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.14, MP2 calls

      Turn: ($0.51 - 25.50 bb) 8:spade: (2 Players)
      MP2 checks, Hero bets $0.38, MP2 calls

      River: ($1.27 - 63.50 bb) 3:club: (2 Players)
      MP2 bets $0.22, Hero calls


      MP2 was 37 / 2 over 98 hands and folding a lot to my raises / cbets.

      Preflop: I'm isolating MP2 as I have a lot of FE (he folded several times before to my isolation raises).

      Flop: cbetting 100% as he is fit or fold.
      Turn: completed my draw so a bet for value vs pairs/2pairs/sets + protection from potential 1 spade FD.
      River: he is very passive and his bet got me worried. I don't wanna raise as not many worse hands will call, but I think I have enough equity to call (I need only 13.25% to break-even).

      HI Dawidas,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: The board is quite wet but we have gutshot + 2 overs + backdoor so the cbet is good.

      The turn is ok, plenty of hands to get value from so we can still bet.

      As played his river is either a block bet with some 2p or an inducer bet.

      So calling is the least we can do. The only question is if we can shove there and get called by worse like 2p and I think the answer is most likely no because the board not only has a flush on it but also 4 to a straight so he may be scared off.
