      Don't know if I played it preflop, most times this is a fold to me because suited connectors are difficult to play with no iniative. Post-flop there are only 2 cards that beat you so get the money in there asap.

      Yeah but I usually play a bit looser being so deep 250bb+. On the flop I feel there is almost nothing that can call if I raise so rather just let him bet. I can always bet if checked to me when I'm in position was my thoughts.

      So I'm thinking if preflop is alright with 98s-QJs type hands when deepstacked and postflop play I'm not sure about either.

      Hello mordath,

      Most likely you could already raise it right on the flop even but of course the way you played the hand is fine as well. But I'd be towards still raising and playing for the stacks since if he has any kind of made hand he is willing to pay us.

      Best Regards.
