      Hi,

      stats would be nice.

      preflop: nh
      flop: bet at least 6-7$ because of very drawheavy board
      turn: medium card and he donks 2/3 pot. I'd call too due to your redraw, because a raise would isolate you BUT villain could easily hold sth. like JT, T9, 87, J9, 22, 99, TT
      river: I tend to fold, because you only beat a bluff and maybe Jx type ot hands as the flush arrived, too. And his size screams for value: T9

      What did he have?
      Let's see what the judges think.

      Best regards,
      Anin

      I would bet more on the flop too , it`s 3 way pot and draw heavy board so just to be safe make it ~6$. Turn line is weird , my guess after that is he`s on smthing like 99-JJ , JT ,QJ myb KJ/AJ. Not sure he will play a draw like that often unless he has the J :spade: in it. If u raise there he might decide to continue with some strong pair + draw hands but he will fold everything else u beat so i guess calling > raising there. River completes the fd but now u beat JT. Still this looks like a value bet so unless some read on him i think fold ?

      you can bet more on the flop, turn call is standard. your hand isn´t strong enough to get all-in
      River: against unknown I´d call him down, you can´t be sure that he isn´t betting there Jx and since he bet on the turn, don´t think he has there always flush.
      Until you can´t be sure it is most of the times two pair+ I´d go for showdown
