      PokerStars - $0.10 NL (6 max) ZOOM - Holdem - 6 players

      No reads on opponent

      BTN: $19.42
      SB: $10.93
      BB: $15.32
      UTG: $8.64
      MP: $10.25
      Hero (CO): $10.05

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has J:spade: 9:spade:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.75, 2 players) 9:club: K:spade: 4:club:
      Hero bets $0.45, BTN calls $0.45

      Bet flop as it's a bet with every hand from my range, air, kings, for opponent not to guess I have a middle pair I bet it. Plus for value vs draws and T9, 98.

      Turn: ($1.65, 2 players) 5:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Here I switch to c\c mode vs possible floats. Draws will fold to my bet as well as weaker nines. No kings will fold.

      River: ($1.65, 2 players) 2:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.00, Hero calls $1.00

      Probably it could be a bet vs weaker nines but I doubt he would call them as well as possible PPs 88-. But his bet is quite large so I doubt I had a call here.

      Hi GreenPiece,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I would add one BB to our bet OOP on a wet board.

      We shouldn't expect draws to fold to our hand but weaker made hands generally do fold so I agree with your line.

      As played what are we really afraid of on the river? A thin valuebet from TT/JJ? He shouldn't have many Kx after the turn check so we do have a call (plus you were going to put that money in on the turn anyway if he bet).
