      Hi,

      According to chart you have to fold that hand preflop.

      I wouldn't cbet on that board because it's very connected and you have very small FE.

      Betting the turn is not a good thing. On this limit you should just play ABC value poker and you will have fair enough winnings.

      Best,

      Not to disagree but I like cbetting because villian will fold TK or QJ and if he calls we can check the turn and so get to the river with 10 clean outs.

      If we check the flop villian will bet almost his whole range on the turn and we will not see the river or worse the turn may be a Queen and villian has us dominated.

      I don't think someone will fold QJ in this spot since he has two overcards + gutshot.

      Hey FunkeyD0nkey,

      Welcome to the MSS/SSS forum!

      According to the articles you should fold the hand preflop, but one can play it. You just need to be a bit more careful so if you think you still need more experience it might be better to stick to the tighter range from the charts.

      On the flop, I would c-bet as well, he will fold his random hands(A2, 32, K8, KQ...) which should make the c-bet +EV by itself and what's more it makes playing the turn much easier.

      Once he calls your c-bet on the flop your fold equity on the turn(the turn being 9) is close to 0 and you should check behind here and hope to hit one of your outs on the river.

      Best regards,
