      I know that hand like T9 isn't good for raise from EP. I also now that I shouldn't have called on the turn. But I would like to know how I should have played on turn. Do u think that I should only have checked with my monster draw?

      Hello BGawli,

      Preflop: Yes, I would rather advice you not to raise such hands from that early. Just avoid marginal situations which could cost you a lot money and those are exactly what you did postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: While I don't really see many hands folding on turn if he Called on flop because those players of those limits just can't fold their hand. :D I would rather even consider just Checking behind the turn just to avoid such a situation. Plus he has some kind of short stack as well so I wouldn't even be surprised to see the Check/Shove.

      Although when you did pick the bet line then on turn you need like 33% equity and against some kind of strong range we ain't getting it:

      Board: 6:club: 7:diamond: Q:spade:  J:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG+1  32.58%  32.58%   0.00% { Ts9s }
      SB     67.42%  67.42%   0.00% { 77-66, KQs, QTs+, KQo, QTo+ }

      At the best we might get a break-even I would say. So rather just Check behind and against his stack you can still ship it even if he has some kind of hand on river since he is likely to bet it.

      Best regards.
