      jeszkar, that's what I think (and I'm no PRO):
      Open raise to 2.5-3bb from CO/BU, not 4bb. When you steal with 4bb from BU you need more than 90% "fold to steal" on each SB and BB for your steal to show immediate profit. And when they call your steal, don't continue betting postflop unless you hit the nuts (2 pair, trips, straight), because your Q9o is dominated by his 10-15% calling range.

      Hello jeszkar,

      Depends of course on the opponent. With the position it's still possible to play but if you rather not sure in your postflop play as I mentioned in early post just fold it preflop and wait for a hand which ain't dominated so often.

      Best Regards.

      This a very was weak reraise, I won't fold every hand only because the opponent play stupidly.
