      I insta called here, but now i think i should have folded on the river couse basically i'm beating here only slowplayed straight (opponent seemed pretty tight passive, so i dont think he's capable of shoving here 9x or 2pairs)

      what about a turn play, i checked here couse the board got really scary for me and for my opponents either, so i dont think they would call my bet with worse hand and i dont want to be check/raised so i checked hoping to boat up on river

      Preflop and flop are ok imo - perhaps bet like $1.45/$1.5 on flop cos wet board and multiway pot.

      Turn - Pretty bad turn for you, like JT,QT,TK all have got there and probably only QdXd, JQ,9Q are calling so yeah I think I might check behind to hope it gets checked round and board to pair on river - because its just too likely for someone to have a T. But then again here we are just like giving up on hand a lot of times so I am not sure wether its best.

      River - Broke - cooler if you're beat.

      Sounds fine. No way to know whether villain is capable of bluffing diamonds or valueshoving a straight like that. Too bad we can't discount stuff like Q9/J9, as those are the only things you'll see if villain is incapable of bluffing or shoving anything that isn't the nuts, which sadly is true of a log of regulars out there.


      Hope it helps.
