      6 players

      Stack sizes:
      UTG: $31.82
      UTG+1: $15
      Hero: $127.15
      Button: $20.63
      SB: $61.74
      BB: $99.75

      Pre-flop: (6 players) Hero is CO with Q:diamond: J:spade:
      UTG calls, UTG+1 calls, [color:#cc0000]Hero raises to $3[/color], Button folds, SB calls, 2 folds, UTG+1 calls.

      Flop: A:diamond: 8:club: 9:club: ($10, 3 players)
      SB checks, UTG+1 checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: T:club: ($10, 3 players)
      SB checks, [color:#cc0000]UTG+1 bets $2[/color], Hero calls, [color:#cc0000]SB raises to $10.5[/color], UTG+1 folds, Hero calls.

      River: 8:heart: ($33, 2 players)
      [color:#cc0000]SB bets $16.5[/color], Hero calls.

      It seems like he must have the flush but I just couldn't fold the straight. Should this be a pretty easy fold for me on the river, if not the flop.

      Play your second nuts more aggressively. I´d raise small UTG bet to 10$ and when SB would then make it 20 or smoothcalls or shoves, then you have decision.
      But generally not giving too much respect having flush here, since why to check twice if you have for example 5c6c. and even with 6c7c you want to build bigger pot on the turn.
      I´d call river. Although you don´t beat much, maybe he bets for value with 78or 8J or bluffbet with busted flushdraw.
