      I tried to squeeze against two very loose limpers with A9 in position. I guess that my hand is much better than their limping range, eaven though they won't fold that many times.

      On the flop I had the best hand in 90% cases, I think, so I bet for value and protection. The turn wasn't that good, but my plan was to bet/fold.

      Is it profitable to squeeze in such spots?
      How was my play postflop?

      I think it´s ok. Iso preflop, on the flop you get value from worse Aces, FDs or whatsoever. Therefore betting turn is ok too, because you are getting money from draws, but I´d fold against a raise. On the River Nothing much you can do you but fold :)

      Hello Alleen86,

      Not much wrong in your play and as well I like the comments you wrote. And definitely I'd Bet/Fold the turn there, just the problem is that often times when such opponents raise they are having a very strong hand. Of course the MP has somewhat big AF but still I wouldn't risk with my money against those opponents. And on river you can't really do much than just fold it.

      Best regards.
