      If it was like QJ, QT I would be more inclined to call. But Q9 might be dominated more often. Is it worth to even defend with this?

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      Well, do you expect the opponent to fold that often to your 3bets? And why not to Call with Q9, especially not even a normal raise. You can perfectly well play it postflop and may still even overplay him if he plays passively and has leaks postflop.

      But as played seems to be fine.

      Best Regards.

      when you call, you should prefer to have more info on the opponent. I don't have that much info, how can I outplay him postflop, so hat was the reason why I din't like to call that much.

      3bet play is easier. But, yeah, might be that he does not fold too much to 3bets.
