      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (4 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop

      UTG ($11.85)
      Button ($47.75)
      SB ($60.30)




      Gerv (BB) ($50)

      Preflop: Gerv is BB with 5, 6
      2 folds, SB bets $1.25, Gerv calls $1

      Flop: ($3) 8, 5, 9 (2 players)
      SB bets $2, Gerv calls $2

      Turn: ($7) 9 (2 players)
      SB bets $6.50, Gerv calls $6.50

      River: ($20) 7 (2 players)
      SB checks, Gerv bets $10, SB calls $10


      Calling Turn was imo questionable but it doesn't really add anything + he is relatively barrel happy as you can see at his stats + its BvB.

      Should I value my straight higher and vBet $14ish ?

      Was raising Flop and going from there a better alternative/

      I see he`s folding 50% to cbet raise and u have ok hand so I guess raising flop would be ok. But you could also go for a call since u have good equity . I think either line is fine here on the flop. But raising makes your turn decision easier so I like that more.

      As played I would call turn since BvB he might fire again there with air and you can still be ahead sometimes.

      there could be so many ugly turn and river cards where you have to fold your hand or even if river is blank and he barrels again I think you have to fold your hand
      So for that reasons I´d turn my hand into semibluff and raise flop expecting to get folds or calls a lot of times and some % if he is 3-betting with flushdraw/overpair or two pair+ I´m happy to fold my hand, since I don´t have that hand range a lot of equity anyway

      So a raise to $7-$8 and then evaluate the turn when called?

      If Turn bricks, do I bet it then or to put it into other words: do I bet the Turn when called? a FD can be in his range but also in mine range and checking behind on a turncard is not really convincing that you have sth in your hand.. ?(

      Thanks

      even 6$ is fine amount, since that would put him on decision how he wants top play his draws or overpairs or for example 8x/77 hand
      If get called I´d check back, since I don´t expect him to fold on blank turn too many worse hands. If turn card is flushdraw, then you can turn your hand into bluff and b/f hoping he is folding overpairs to your strong turn bet.
