Hi guys,

Please could you analyse my hand below. No reads on villain.

Interesting spot.

I'd generally just call given the price we are getting and both flush draws bricking.

You tend to see a lot of junk in these spots vs weaker players.

I actually think it's a fold on the turn tbh... the sizing is an "I've got to protect my hand" kind of sizing, not an "I may be ahead but I'm not sure" sizing. T9 is possible, maybe 98 but those hands often don't feel so confident simply because of their kicker. The latter is the river sizing when the J comes. I was expecting to see A9 at that point. TT didn't surprise me.

Against a player who will play draws very aggressively and bluff rivers, def. call down is fine, but without that read I don't think we're good nearly often enough to snap the river.

I agree with Dave and would fold the turn. I give a lot of credit to pot-sized bets. Villain has potted it for 2 streets. You need a solid read to put him on anything you beat on the turn.
