      Known players:

      0.25/0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 7:spade: , 8:spade:
      6 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, SB raises to $2.50, BB folds, Hero calls $1.00.

      Flop: ($5.50) 6:club: , J:spade: , 9:diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($5.50) 5:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.00, SB raises to $4.00, Hero raises to $8.23 (All-In), SB calls $4.23.

      River: ($21.96) 9:spade: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $21.96

      My call to the miniresteal is pretty horrid, because they always have monsters when they do that. Fortunately, Villain couldn't have played worse post flop. :) River card gives me a flush - just in case the straight wasn't good enough!

      Pre-flop, yeah, I'd fold to re-steal.

      On flop I like your check behind, there are 15 cards that can either give you a monster or a monster draw on turn, so why not peek for free.

      On Turn I'd bet a little more, say $3 or $3.5, for value in case villain doesn't call river or re-raise.

      Hey Tim64,

      preflop you have an insta fold with SC vs minraise.

      Postflop, cb on the flop is fine as you only have OESD and not a monsterdraw. On the turn I would as well bet more, like 3.5-4$ and of course all-in to the reraise.
