      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has Q:heart: A:spade:

      fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, MP calls 3 BB, fold, fold, fold, fold, BB calls 2 BB

      Flop: (9.5 BB, 3 players) 9:club: 9:diamond: J:spade:
      BB checks, Hero bets 6 BB, MP calls 6 BB, fold

      Turn: (21.5 BB, 2 players) T:club:
      Hero checks, MP checks

      River: (21.5 BB, 2 players) K:club:
      Hero bets 10 BB, MP raises to 131 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 89.5 BB and is all-in

      I had initiative on the flop so I cbet. I planned to check fold on the turn. Then I hit the straight so I bet half the pot. He went all in. I thought I was 50/50 to split the pot as he most likely had a straight or a full house. So I called... Really just hoping to split or catch a stupid bluff. Is this just a situation where you have to fold?

      Hi Edukator,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: flop and turn are ok but on the river I'd bet/fold every day long. Even the backdoor flush got there and we barely have any money invested there.

      So I would not be able to bluffcatch or try to split vs unknown.
