      River: ($25.70) A (2 players)

      Final Pot: $25.70.

      T9o is not in my normal range for the blinds. This is a steal gone errrr.... My thoughts are: I wish he would play his holecards better.

      C/F turn? Dont steal with this again even if 5 handed?

      PF: I think it's ok to raise but also OK to complete from the SB, I would probably raise it myself though against CO limper. It's not a steal, it's an isolation raise.

      Flop: CB is OK, but I would just fold to the minraise. All you have is a gutshot which isn't clean and 2nd pair.

      Turn: As played I would donk-blockbet/fold the turn (are you allowed to blockbet on the turn? I dunno, but here I don't want to invest too much with a bet/fold) for something like $2. The obvious draws got there - every 9 has a straight and the flushdraw completed. My small bet is there to encourage a single Q to call, with my plan on the river being to check and hope for a free showdown against Q.

      You can avoid the long and complicated turn explanation by folding the flop though :tongue:
