      I don't like calling PF here. You're not getting too good odds and you're OOP against the agressor. It's true he may be stealing with mediocre hands, but you're probably behind anyway. So I'd fold.

      As played, I'd raise more on the flop (~$2.30) and push turn.

      Oh, and don't post the results next time, they don't matter anyway. ;)

      I think closing the action preflop, getting 1:3 with 9Ts is actually quite playable.

      The proviso is that you can be sure that you will get the stack of the Premium hands when you hit, and fold when you don't. At this level, and even up to NL50, people won't fold their KK or AA hands, because they know that you shouldn't have called preflop with any hands that could beat them on that flop, so they pay off. Sometimes of course, they will suck out with the third A or K, or get a counterfeit higher two pair, so get the money in as soon as, definitely no later than the turn.

      If you know you are up against this kind of player, you can play this sometimes.

      The call is close, as playing SCs without initiative OOP is often -EV. Folding or squeezing both is an option.

      Postflop is fine.
