      On flop i got gutshot so with my bet i can win my pot now or get value for my possible straight.

      I hit turn and bet for value.

      what should i do on river, can i make bet,
      or check and call only half pot size.

      I like betting more on flop when the board is so draw heavy, but w/e.


      Always bet the river, no question.
      If he raises or shoves than it is villain dependent. But he is far more likely to have the trips here than 89.


      If he is a decent tag or a nit than you can consider folding if he raises you, if he is one of the typical NL5 fishes than high five your screen and shove, if he has it than bad luck you will get him next time.

      Valueblockbet the river with $1.10 or something. If he raises you can definetly think about folding. But even to a minraise I don't know if we should fold our straight. To a big raise on the river i would def. fold.
