      Poker Stars, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 2 Players

      Hero (BB): $25.55 (102.2 bb)
      SB: $24.50 (98 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 9 8
      SB raises to $0.50, Hero calls $0.25

      Flop: ($1) 9 6 K (2 players)
      Hero checks, SB bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50

      Turn: ($2) T (2 players)
      Hero checks, SB checks

      River: ($2) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, SB bets $1.25, Hero raises to $4,

      SB 26/19 on small sample

      After he checked behind this turn, he wont have flushdraws (except maybe T:sX), or any strong hand usually.
      My plan was to check river, if he checks behind, my pair could be good at showdown sometimes, if he bets (for thin value mainly), then I turn my hand into bluff with a chRaise, to make him fold his marginal holdings (which are still better than my hand). I dont have a blocker which is bad, but what do you think about the plan? Sizing?

      First thing - How often are you taking this line with flushes? If you are balanced here then I think the gameplan is fine. But I prefer doing it with spade blockers for sure and I would just fold this hand here.
