      SB bets 9 BB, Hero calls 9 BB

      Hero shows J:spade: A:heart: (One Pair, Jacks) (Pre 45%, Flop 28%, Turn 14%)
      SB shows 8:heart: 8:spade: (One Pair, Eights) (Pre 55%, Flop 72%, Turn 86%)
      Hero wins 36.1 BB

      Is it ok to call river? flush completes, and he could bet with Qx, but also OESD missed, and maybe he turns into bluff middle pair

      The River decision is close. I know you only have 76 hands but do you have any sort of sample on villain's fold to flop cbet? Having something like 0 out of 3 would help a lot for this decision. The wider his flop calling range and the higher his river aggression, the more you can lean towards a call.

      If he is just being very straight forward and folding a lot on the Flop then I think the river is a fold.
