      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is UTG with 8 :spade: 9 :spade:
      Hero raises to $0.15, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.15, 2 folds

      Preflop maybe too loose open.
      Can we fold river ?
      I snap called it but when i try to think about his river shove here i dont see many hands thah he will shove and be behind because i think sets, two pairs raises OTF or OTT and theres no point to shove sets or two pairs OTR when u can easilly be behind my flush. Maybe im thinking too deep into this hand..

      Hey gMantas,

      Preflop open is fine, but certainly not mandatory. Usually worth checking your database for winnings with suited-connectors UTG. Many players are close to break-even - but doesn't necessarily mean you can't open them if you want to.

      I think flop + turn are very likely fine just because have a ton of equity.

      River bet is fine. Raise is very tough. Usually I would end up calling in this spot purely for the chance villain is mistakenly raising worse for value. Don't expect it to be hugely profitable though, and expect to be up against a better flush the majority of the time. (We don't need to win the majority of the time for a profitable call of course due to money in pot).
