      I lost count of the number of outs I had lol

      Villain was very loose and passive, check calling a lot and getting incredibly lucky. Made it my mission to double up through him, but I didn't get what I wanted on the river. I doubt an AI on the river would have made him fold anyway.

      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by

      Preflop: Hero is BU with T:heart: , 9:heart:
      UTG2 calls $0.05, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $0.05, MP3 calls $0.05, CO folds, Hero calls $0.05, SB folds, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.27) 8:diamond: , K:heart: , J:heart: (5 players)
      BB checks, UTG2 checks, MP2 checks, MP3 checks, Hero bets $0.25, BB folds, UTG2 raises to $0.50, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.70, UTG2 calls $1.20.

      Turn: ($3.67) 9:club: (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $3.00, UTG2 calls $3.00.

      River: ($9.67) T:diamond: (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $9.67

      Thinking a turn shove MIGHT have done it though, but I doubt it.

      I don't like betting so much on the turn, like you said he's not really into folding. So i'm not really semibluffing him, it's more a thin valuebet against draws and pot building bet in case we hit. As such we don't need to make it that big to shove any river when we hit. I think $2 is enough for that purpose.

      Hope it helps.
