      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is BB with 9 :club: 7 :club:
      4 folds, SB raises to $0.06, Hero calls $0.04

      SB bets $0.09, Hero raises to $0.28, SB calls $0.19

      Turn: ($0.68) 4 :spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.44, SB calls $0.44

      Hero has FD + OESD but will his semi-bluff ever work against SB's range?

      River: ($1.56) 7 :diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Hi Raknyo,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Facing a bigger cbet there I doubt we have a ton of FE on the flop so calling is an option because we really don't want to get reraised.

      As played the turn bet doesn't do much except build up the pot. What hands can fold the turn that called the flop?

      And as played check river is fine.
