      Flop: Cbetting.

      Turn & River: ....

      On flop I can expect to call here some random draws, 99-JJ and maybe some Ax. But that's still good enough as I really don't want to check it down and make even worse as there are hell of a lot bad cards for me.
      T - bad as it completes straights and TT now made a set. Well at this point I'm leaking money as if I'm calling his turn bet I have to put him on some random one pair - against everything else I'm dead or 2outing. But I had an idea of him just making a bet, because he just doesn't really I could fit in that board and I show weakness on turn by checking. Possible? Not really... After calling turn, river card doesn't really change anything, but as I said - I can't see combos I'm ahead and that are worth calling 4.50$.

      Any thoughts?

      Flop: Seems like I should cbet a bit more, but anyway doing it as board is wet enough for villains to continue with FD/SD.

      Turn: Solid raise by villain, but I see many pocket pairs or 9x here, I can't really fold, can I?

      Hand 1.

      As played make a block bet on the river something like 1/4 if he raises you he 100% got 9 he will call you down with anyother hands he got you beat but there is a chance you are still ahead and if you make a block bet he is very unlikely to bluff you on the river that he might be doing with any two random cards.This can cost a little bit of money but it will make you sure you are not folding the best hand here.

      Hand 2.

      I don't see him raising any 9's there he is most probably calling you down till river.Maybe he can hold a JJ or overpairs ,rarely a T that have edge over the 9.But as i see know he limped so it's very questionable what does he got.I'd say really a 9 or T , since the T isn't anything to be discussable your play is good.

      1) i think it is player dependent, sometimes I´d call river, sometimes I´d fold
      I think I would mostly c/c turn to let him bluff with worse hands. Whether I´d call or not depends on the game flow, my image, how often I think he would bluff there and also our history. if you don´t have any reads then fold is littlebit better than call

      2) you can´t b/f turn, although it seems a lot like Tx. I think he can eaisly sometimes have there bluff or some lower pp
