      Hello guys...

      I know that I shouldn´t play A9s from MP3 but sometimes I stretch the SHC a bit :rolleyes: .That said should I have played it different?

      Raise to $1 preflop, and on this flop, bet potsize to represent made hand potecting against FD. If you take it down there, great. Bet again on the turn since you hit top pair, still representing fear of the FD, meaning you can extract maximum value if you are called or raised.

      Are you gonna tell us he played J9 of spades here? EDIT: which of course is impossible since you have the 9. ;)

      Well, I don't use the SHC so... I play A9s in MP. :D

      But I only limp.

      As played I would bet every street.

      A little bit more on the flop though, something between 3/4 and potsize.

      I also don't use an SHC, but I think raising A9s from MP is not a good play as you are too often in dominated spots.
