      Preflop: In BU I might consider a blind-steal with this, but in MP I would never raise with this hand, if there are other limpers you could limp in, otherwise I'd just fold.

      Flop: You're in position here so you should bet out, I'd say about half the pot, $0.18.

      Turn: He isn't likely to check with a queen on the flop so I'd make a second bet here.

      River: If he suddenly bet out large here I'd consider folding, but otherwise I'd made a 3/4 pot size bet.

      Preflop is good, T9s is okay OR hand in Hijack.Flop we have a standart Cbet, as the guy mentioned above around 2\3.On the turn tho i dont agree with the opinion above, basicly we can't have 3 streets of value with that hand(if we 3 barrel i dont see how he will fold a queen also).Flop he can often c\c TP, some PP that plan to play c\f turn and OESD.Given that i would.Given that i will often check behind turn and depending on the river will decide should i have a valuebet.On that river i will bet around halfpot, he might find a call here with a PP(99,88 etc).

      Hello YourDoom,

      Preflop: If you think your postflop skill is good enough to play such hands perfectly then why not to open-raise but although I wouldn't recommend for the beginning. I'd prefer to have it at late position.

      As played
      Flop: As I was the PFA, I'd just CBet here, sometimes even for value.

      As played if flop was Checked behind
      Turn: At least bet here for value, we often have the best hand here, since he wouldn't Check 2times with stronger hand.
      River: Might even consider betting here smallish for value to get Called by smaller PPs, ~$0.20.

      Best regards.
