      Opp is 27/27 small sample

      Pre I think this hand is too strong to fold, too weak to 3bet for value and I have too small of a sample for a good read for a 3bet bluff, so I just call.

      I figured he would most likely continue on this flop, so c/c

      I hit gin on turn and lead not to give a free card

      I basically have to call the river minraise, he could be doing it with any Ax/any 2pair worse than mine

      Hey Trzewia,

      I think this hand is played really well until river.

      Would still bet river for value but I think folding vs min-raise is best here. Opponent mainly has flushes/boats.

      Pretty unlikely opponent does this with an Ax. In some ways there are no worse 2pair combos because the board is paired. Any Ax has aces + nines.
