      River: ($17.91) T (1 players)
      UTG1 bets $17.91, Hero ???.

      Only 5 hands on the villain VP:20/PR:0/AFq:75
      My turn bet is kinda weak ...

      And on the river my hand turns into a pure bluffcatcher?
      His turn minraise clearly says there's no bluff to be caught here,
      so a 100% fold (esp. against an unknown) ?

      Hey!

      Well played until the turn. I'd raise it a bit more preflop though. 4bb + 1 per limper should be standard.

      I like the big flop cb, super drawy flop, let's make him pay to see a turn card :s_cool:

      On the turn however, we should never ever ever bet. There's no value to be had, as every worse hand now folds AND there's no protection needed as all the draws completed. We're beat here very often, but we can still redraw to a better hand. So the ideal play here is to check back and hope to spike a 9 or a flush.

      As played, easy fold on the river :)

      Cheers!
