      SB was unknown but had goldstar rating in pokerstars (4 stars).

      Preflop: Opted to defend vs a minraise with a plan to raise his cbet on many flops.

      Flop: one of the best flops I could get so I raise for protection from overcards mostly, but my raise is a semi-bluff because if he calls I'm behind.

      Turn: he calls so I put him on possibly Ax FD or a higher PP. A set is also possible but I think it would 3bet me on the flop to get it in. I decided to check back the turn as I didn't improve and if he had A high FD he is not folding and I'm probably behind. If he has PP I'm still behind.

      River: he pot bets into me and I tank. I don't think he would do that with higher PPs. So it's only A high FD which missed or random 4x which is still a possibility. I decided that it is possible that he would take this line with AJ+ of clubs and he want value on the river so my 2 pair will probably be good 1/3 times.

      Hey Dawidas888,

      I think preflop defend with 92s is unnecessary here, but certainly not ridiculous with position vs a min-raiser.

      I think flatting flop is fine with a hand this strong. You will have odds/implieds to call any turn, especially when you have a pair with your draw. If villain checks turn you can bet.

      As played I would barrel the turn here. We don't have much info on villain but you will have all-round good fold-equity and pot-equity. Villain may easily fold a hand like 66-JJ on this turn card. Villain may also call with a hand like Q:cJ which you are a favourite against. Betting looks all round better than checking.
