      Hi,

      I would prefer raising flop a little more to 0.8$ to protect my hand against draws and get value from worse hands. 9c is not the best card, but also not the worst. I would bet there 1.2$ that would put MP3 all-in and get also value from SB worse hands

      best regards,

      Hello cozacu,

      Usually in those spots I also pay attention on the opponents stack. As you see MP3 does have a small stack therefore I'd raise the same amount as he has and put him all-in.

      But otherwise Check/Folding vs bigger bet/raise is fine or either just Bet yourself on the turn and put MP3 all-in and protect vs SB flat like that which could also be a draw.

      Best Regards.
