      Hi! One more question from test

      [VPIP/PFR/AF/WTS/Hands]
      BB ($100.00) (35/12/0.8/29/433)
      UTG ($100.00) (15/8/2.6/23/776) [VPIP/PFR/AF/WTS/Hands]

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 8 :heart: , 8 :diamond:
      UTG calls $1.00, 2 folds, Hero raises to $5.00, 1 fold, BB calls $5.00, 1 fold

      Flop: ($11.50) 8 :spade: , 9 :diamond: , T :heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $9.00, BB calls $9.00

      Turn: ($29.50) Q :spade: (2 players)

      Hello,

      Interesting spot.

      Usually the standard thing to do against unknown is to check back here, but against a passive fish with a relatively big WTSD I would rather double barrel here to get called by two pair/etc.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Yes, agree to you, I also chose to fire a 2nd barrel but the author suggests to take check behind.
      He says even fish will hardly call here with worse hands but with his WTS it shouldn't be an issue I suppose.
      So I get smth like this, favors us to value bet here:

      Board: 8:spade: 9:diamond: T:heart:  Q:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      SB     43.94%  40.49%   3.45% { TT-99, AJs-ATs, KTs, Q8s+, JTs, T8s+, 98s, AJo-ATo, KTo, QTo+, JTo, T9o }
      BB     56.06%  52.61%   3.45% { 8d8h }


      I would make it around 65% here, what will you say about this sizing? I think 50% is a low one and 75%+ is much, so somewhere in between.

      I think that something like $18 should be fine.

      Also I would not really agree that fishes are going to fold two pair in this spot.
