      Definitely raise turn, but raise more, and fold ifyou get reraised too aggressively as showdown will be too expensive. I would just call the river.

      This, sortof. Pot raise the turn, you won't get 3bet often at all. If it does happen it mostly depends on how bad the 3betting player is.

      I like your raise on the river but i would make is smaller to make sure Jx and maybe even Tx calls again. If you get shoved on it really sucks since most people wouldn't get there with a naked 9x, so unless he's insane it's likely a fold.


      Hope it helps.

      1) What do you mean "pot raise the turn", I thought I did exactly that?

      2) How much should I bet on the river?

      Hi,


      Must have been out of it somehow when i wrote that, you indeed made a potsize raise already so the turn is fine.

      As for the river make it something that this halfstack guy can call without losing most of his money, like $0.3 maybe. Since he rarely has something strong there anyway, it's more a matter of making it psychologically easier for him to pay off.


      Hope it helps.
