      $0.02 NL - Holdem - 10 players[/b]

      MP: $4.42
      MP+1: $2.00
      MP+2: $1.38
      LP: $1.00
      CO: $2.54
      Hero (BTN): $1.97
      SB: $1.98
      BB: $0.66
      UTG: $5.19
      UTG+1: $1.92

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has J:diamond: J:spade:

      UTG raises to $0.06, fold, MP calls $0.06, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.24, SB calls $0.23, fold, UTG calls $0.18, fold

      Flop: ($0.80, 3 players) 9:spade: 8:diamond: Q:heart:
      SB bets $0.40, fold, Hero??

      Villain is very loose and fairly aggressive; I saw him cc in mp with K5o, flat call the flop, bet turn with trips on 55xx board.

      Because of this, I think he doesn't donk with a set or straight here, rather he waits to check raise flop or turn. He bets 1/2 pot, so I think he has lots of draws in his range and hands like T9, Q9.

      How should I proceed to gain max protection v draws, while not overplaying v Qx?

      Hello Iolar,

      Preflop: I'd even raise it bigger here against those stations, ~$0,30.
      Postflop: And at the best I would just Call it here. When we do raise when we likely could just isolating us against better hands and I don't plan to go broke either. We could like Call on flop and then decide what kind of actions we gonna take on turn if he continues then might even prefer folding.

      Best regards.
