      $3.87 pot ($0.16 rake)
      Final Board: T J 9 3 K
      MP mucked and won $3.71 ($1.81 net)
      Hero mucked K J and lost (-$1.90 net)

      Opp is 59/35, 3,7AF

      I bet near pot cause of wet board. Call min c/r, because he could be doing this with basically his full range.

      On river there is 4 to straight, plus he appears very strong and my 2p is basically a bluff catcher at this point.

      Hey trzewia,

      It's true you want to bet big on drawy boards generally, but not always in cases where your equity runs very thin. Your hand is really not that strong on this texture.

      Might work out better to select a small sizing then increase aggression on safe turns if opponent does not take aggressive action on flop.

      Vs flop check-raise you should fold because board is so terrible. Your hand is pretty weak here in the relative sense.
