      Hello boum98,

      Preflop: Fold such hands preflop! You are putting yourself into trouble while not having enough of postflop skills.

      As played
      Postflop: For the given odds I would even consider Calling the turn but of course folding will be the safest option.

      Best Regards.

      I agree. The 9Js gapper is good for an open raise but not a call. I should have folded preflop.
