      Hello guys, I am really curious what do you think about this hand.

      PF: I am using a mix strategy, but usually just call.

      OTF: Well, now I am focusing on check/raise, because I think people are overfolding, so I am trying to exploit that leak. The flop is quite drawy, so it is also for protection and villain will still call me with draws, but can also fold better hands like QQ-99. What do you think about this move?

      OTT: Interesting card, but I do not want go check/fold and he has still lot of draws. I think I have enough fold equity to profitable bet, because I assume that he would fold Kx,8x,7x hands. And actually if he just call OTF, he should not have sets here, so I think his range is capped on draws, weak twopairs, or some AK,KQ probably.

      OTR: One of the best card for me. On some blanks I would usually just check/fold, but here I suppose to I have a value bet against worse twopairs, Ax FD, but yeah I would fold to a raise. Maybe I could go little bit bigger, but I wanted to get call from all Ax hands.

      On every 8,A and probably 9,6, maybe K.

      Not bad. Standard move is the flop call and Probably fold turn. As played i would check fold or check raise turn and Bet river on A. Otherwise i would fold or call. Its only my opinion and im not a pro.

      That is the problem it is drawy flop. He has PP, but many draws here. He can call them on F on good odds..
      You called PF. If it is fits into your strategy and on BB is not a agre player, why not. He opened just on 2bb.
      Flop you got 2nd pair but it does not mean anything (it is different than this flop e.x.: 9-8-2o).
      (weaker Kx he problebly check behind on T)
