      Hello clandestineAl,

      Preflop: Pretty horrible Call here. :( Not the greatest hand to play.

      As played
      Postflop: Most likely I'd just fold the flop but as you Called there then nothing much to add on turn.

      Best regards.

      I know I posted another hand pretty similar to this where I called a raise from a tight UTG raise. Can I not make any calls like this? what if it was 9Ts? If I can put him on a pretty small range is it not worth trying to bust him?

      T9s is whole different story. With T9 you might even able to hit pairs but what you are able to hit with 34s? :P Mostly wont have even TP.
