      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has 9:diamond: T:diamond:

      Hero raises to $0.40, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, BTN calls $0.40, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.95, 2 players) 6:diamond: J:diamond: Q:club:

      River: ($11.01, 2 players) 4:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $4.79, fold

      What do you think about this hand?
      I opened raise because the table was really tight so I don't think so I was big mistake. What about the flop? I was thinking about move all in but I think it wouldn't have been great idea because I would isolate myself for better hands, his rr was very strong so I didn't see fold equity in this play so I decided to just call, I had nice implied odds.
      On the turn I think it was easy call...

      Hello BGawli,

      Usually myself I'd even consider shipping it here for the given part that he may as well even raise there with Qx hands like AQ/KQ. But of course if you only expect him to have only sets then rather take the implied odds. But for example, we need ~45% equity here and if we expect him even to raise there with such a range:

      Board: 6:diamond: J:diamond: Q:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    46.67%  46.67%   0.00% { Td9d }
      UTG+1  53.33%  53.33%   0.00% { QQ-JJ, 66, AQs, KQs, QJs, AQo, KQo, QJo }

      As you still see we can even consider to go broke here. But of course against sets it will be a less and not that profitable if profit at all. Vs sets:

      Board: 6:diamond: J:diamond: Q:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    39.65%  39.65%   0.00% { Td9d }
      UTG+1  60.35%  60.35%   0.00% { QQ-JJ, 66 }

      Although we can't put him on only sets here and while being OOP it's gonna be really hard to extract value from him while he might just Check behind. But of course overall we are getting the implied odds here for the given odds he is even giving us.

      Best Regards.
