Pokerrom $50PL.

I have about $80 in the BB, and have 5 /images/graemlins/spade.gif 8 /images/graemlins/heart.gif 9 /images/graemlins/spade.gif J /images/graemlins/heart.gif. Not a great hand I'll admit.

UTG has about $175 and has the table covered. He bets pot $1.75 - and gets 2 callers before me. I make a loose call.

Flop comes 6 /images/graemlins/heart.gif 7 /images/graemlins/heart.gif K /images/graemlins/club.gif

I bet out $5. UTG Calls. Others fold

Turn Comes Q /images/graemlins/diamond.gif

I bet out $15, UTG Calls

River is K /images/graemlins/spade.gif

I had straight draws (nut and non Nut) and Flush Draws (non- nut) but missed them all.

I also felt that that K could be a scare card if he has 2 Pair, or even AA if he thought I filled up. If he was also on a draw there isn't much chance he hits.

I bet out $30.

I really like this river bet. I often see players at these stakes calling bets on the flop and turn with raggety draws, folding on the river to any bet if they miss. I would expect your opponent to fold 70-80% of the time here.
