      Preflop: Hero is SB with T, 9.
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.30, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.25, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.7) 2, 7, 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $0.30, Hero calls $0.30.

      Turn: ($1.3) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $0.40, Hero raises to $1.40, MP1 calls $1.00.

      River: ($4.1) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.69, MP1 raises to $8.00, Hero calls $5.31.

      Final Pot: $20.1.

      Preflop: we were both 150 + BB deep, so I calculated enough implieds.
      Opponent is: 17/10/1,2

      Flop was good but thought that he had some overcards and didnt raise.

      On turn was perfect place to reraise, he might hit his A and calls my raise.

      On river things got ugly , I cant lay down a flush here, so I called and hoped he had slowplayed weaker flush.

      Is my play here correct ?

      how many hands have u got on villain?

      call PF aint so bad but your going to be OOP the whole hand so I would call very rarely.
      Nice flop, I'm betting everytime here though, another :diamond: and you have a horrible decision.

      Turn as played I'm betting again and calling a raise. I wouldnt be to worried about being u against another flush. sure you could put villain on K :diamond: Q :diamond: , A :diamond: Q+ :diamond: but its unlikely.

      and river, maybe you could check/call to keep the pot smaller but villain could of also hit his set on the turn :)

      have about 750 hands on villain, so sample is quite good.

      I would definitely check-raise flop. If doesn't call you'd probably wouldn't win much anyway. If he calls or raises it's great.

      On the turn I would lead out because he will probably raise an ace, so you can reraise. Or he calls your raise with a higher :diamond:
      Against some opponents I might check-raise the turn again if I think they will bet that ace no matter what they have.

      I would only fold the river if the board paired. (or maybe still call :) )

      check raise flop, bet turn, bet/jam river.
      Much easier line for us and will make all our decisions easier on future streets.

      a) You're gonna get 0 value from your hand if another comes.
      b) He could have A x:x K x:x Q x:x... none of which you're gonna be able to make him fold anymore at that point.

      So you don't wanna see another but you also don't wanna see the board pair... Just go calculate how many cards you need to dodge now.

      So raise the flop and valuetown the guy wtf. If I'm villain I'm going broke with overpairs or any 2 overcards with any one of the above 3 cards. Cold calling a less then 1/2 pot bet on the flop here is seriously -EV.

      Turn... same thing. Raise bigger, you're giving the guy 3:1 and he has position on the river...
      3.1:1. Flush draw or a set and given those odds? Please show me the river! So really, raise potsize ($2.5).

      River... ok.

      That's another good reason to get the money in asap.

      I´d also c/r flop and put more pressure against player being oop.
      He might go for pot control.
      I wouldn´t also fold river.
