      Very bad spot to have set I think. Its supposed to be a thin value bet. Villain is a very big fish so I do not believe he has a hand which actually beats me, but I still want his worse hand to call.

      If he is a big fish he will call a raise on the flop with Jx/Tx and all kind of draws and even if it`s not the case you need to protect on that very wet board and you need information so I`m raising flop. As played I`m betting 10$ on river. After two pot sized bets I think he has either two pairs or lower set and he will call I think

      Hard to be too aggressive on the river when any 9 beats us, especially against a fish who might well take that 9 to the river... I like the smaller value bet and might even have checked down.

      You may as well shove. If he's calling $10 he's calling $12.50.

      I would definitely raise the flop.

      Hello,
      As said, raise on this flop for value and protection.
      As played, raise turn for the same reasons.
      As played, he is never checking a made str8 here since the pot is too big.Therefore you can shove for value.
      Best regards,
