      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with J:heart: , 9:heart:
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, SB calls $0.18, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.45) A:club: , T:club: , 8:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.28, SB calls $0.28.

      Turn: ($1.01) 6:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.64, SB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.01

      Doable to open with this on BU? Both blinds are relatively unknown.

      Ok to double barrel with my OESD? Maybe I can shake off Tx, weak Ax or FD that would call once on flop.

      Hello member001,

      Preflop: Yeah, totally fine to raise it with J9s. Against a loose player it should be pretty easily play. If we even hit big then we can extract value.
      Postflop: Actually it's pretty close, while he seems to be pretty loose I guess I might even consider Checking behind. Of course it's doable and maybe even make fold some FD type of hands. Although against that kind of loose opponent I might just Check behind and be happy to get a free card.

      Best regards.
