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

      Hero (SB): 102.8 BB
      BB: 181.6 BB (VPIP: 0.00, PFR: 0.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 4)

      Hero posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has 8:heart: 7:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to 2 BB, Hero raises to 8 BB, fold, BTN calls 6 BB

      Flop: (17 BB, 2 players) 9:diamond: 8:diamond: T:heart:
      Hero bets 13 BB, BTN raises to 29 BB, fold

      Once again my "brilliant" play from SB, I think I have close to 0 FE here and it shouldn't be a raise. Can we call here?

      On the flop we can't call by outs and being OOP, right?

      Preflop: This is a reasonable play, nothing wrong with it

      Flop: I would prefer a c/c line. I don't think it's strong enough to bet/push and bet/fold seems weak. With JT I would bet/push.

      By checking I think villain will bluff a really wide % of his range and you can just c/c most Turns as well and c/f River unimproved. You should also have some stronger hands in your checking range which can withstand multiple barrels like JT or T:dX
