      Hi,

      I think your flop and turn play are reasonable. If you don´t want to b/c against shortstacks you can always take free card on the turn and then bet if everybody checks again to you. Pre-flop I´d prefer at least QT+ to isolate loose midstacks, since you have to play a lot of times stacks postflop and it Q9 really doesn´t have the best kickers.

      Good luck at the tables,

      Hello Paszczi01,

      Someone pressed the button again. But anyways. I don't mind such a play at all. The only problem is that you are going to play with pretty weak kicker postflop and I'd really watch out with what I'd isolate. But of course if expect their limp/call range being a lot wider then seems to be fine.

      There is no point to CB the flop anyways while there are too many mid-stacks. We don't want to play for the stacks. Otherwise the turn seems to be fine, not much to do vs his stack.

      Best Regards.
