      This hand I kind of lost my way and didn't know what to do on the turn or river


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:

      SB:
      $4.23

      $9.96
      MP2:
      $5.00
      MP3:
      $5.63


      Preflop: Hero is BB with 6, 7.
      4 folds, SB raises to $0.15, Hero calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.3) 9, T, 5 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.20, Hero raises to $0.65, SB calls $0.45.

      Turn: ($1.6) 4 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.15, SB calls $1.15.

      River: ($3.9) 9 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2.30, SB calls $2.28.

      Final Pot: $8.48.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of nines(6 7).
      SB shows two pairs, aces and nines(A A).

      SB wins with two pairs, aces and nines(A A).

      The guy afterwards told me in chat he thought I had T9!!!! WTF
      I guess when he calls my flop raise I should just check the turn as it commits me.

      -> 3rd example



      him calling ur raise oop on the flop, combined with the fact that the turn isn't a scared card (4 is a total brick, doesn't complete any draws, doesn't bring an overcard to the flop, nothing that can call a flop raise fold to it here) allows you to comfortably c behind. Checking the turn also allows him to make a bet on the river with overpair/2pair type of hand even if we hit one of our draws, and we can still get it in.

      Another hint not to 3 barrel is his stack size. Even if you believe for whatever reason that 2 barrel is good, he seems determined to get to showdown, so even tho there is no way we can win this hand besides a bluff, I don't think that kind of a player is even letting go on Tx considering the river card.
