      I was new to this table so no particular read, I assume others are rational players.

      Analysis

      Preflop: suited connector looked pretty and one cold calling donkey in already, I would have borrowed if I have to in order to join the party, with a view to encourage callers to build the pot.

      Flop: I knew flush draw could be there, but I was happy to call at this price and prayed for gutshot, I also planned to raise big if no heart fell on Turn.

      Turn: No heart. EP bet less than 1/3 pot, I hit top pair and raised big (raised pot actually) as planned in an effort to collect. I was surprised when EP called.

      River: EP donked, again less than 1/3 pot. I did not really think much about the call since I beat all pairs on flop.

      Your perspective?

      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      We have two overcards, gutshot and backdoor flush draw, so I think calling flop is quite reasonable here for this price.

      As played, raising turn is acceptable as I would expect to take thin value from hands such as 9x/draws and I would usually plan to check back river.

      I think calling river is fine as well.

      Nice hand sir.

      Best,
      Plamen
