      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with 8, 8.
      Hero calls $0.25, 3 folds, CO calls $0.25, 2 folds, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.85) 5, 7, 8 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.60, CO calls $0.60, BB folds.

      Turn: ($2.05) 3 (2 players)

      I know the check on river invited him to bet but the straight and flush was on so i couldn't possibly call. should I b/f on river instead?

      agree that board is very drawy, but that makes it also good to bluff with worse hands

      Hi,

      I would also c/c that small amout.
      But another question:
      The flop and turn are super drawy, then why didn't you protect more?
      bet near pot on flop
      bet near pot on turn
      c/c small amout and c/f to shove or potsize bet

      Can we play blockbet/f on river considering that villain has 6x or flush like nearly always?

      Best regards,
      Anin

      blockbet/fold is fine
      I think you should bet there 2/3 pot to avoid bluffshove

      Bet potsize flop and turn, because we want to stack this guy, we are oop and its very drawy. Any 4, 6 or 9 kills the action and all of a sudden you don't know what to do.

      9s is prob worst card ever for you.

      Call his small river bet, if he bluffs there at least 25% of the time then its a good call. You induced the bet by checking turn. If he has you beat, nothing you can do without a very good read that he never bluffs.

      On river, c/c vs aggro, you can b/f vs station/passive player but he might have 2pair here in unraised pot so sometimes b/c. Be wary if player with high W$SD starts betting/raising you.
