      Preflop: Hero is BB with T, 9.
      7 folds, SB calls $0.50, Hero raises to $2.00, SB calls $2.00.

      SB checks, Hero bets $4.00, SB calls $4.00.

      Stupid call on the river for sure. Question is should I have bet the turn?

      With this Turn I'd probably second barrel, I think he can have many draws/weak pairs there, and then you can often check behind River. Any stats on villain?

      Hey RahXephon1,

      I would prefer to raise 3BBs preflop, cause otherwise pot might get too big too fast, for instance it would be better to have some more than just potsize left on the turn...

      As played, I would bet 8$ on the turn for value from FD and for free SD on the river, but if villain shows any action then I'd give up after the turn bet.

      Regards,
