      UTG (€2.11)
      UTG+1 (€3.86)
      CO (€0.67)
      dienaszaglis (BTN) (€2.96)
      SB (€1.36)
      BB (€1.11)

      Pre-Flop: (€0.03, 6 players) dienaszaglis is BTN J:heart: 9:diamond:
      2 folds, CO calls €0.02, dienaszaglis raises to €0.10, 2 folds, CO calls €0.08

      Flop: 10:spade: 6:diamond: Q:spade: (€0.23, 2 players)
      CO checks, dienaszaglis bets €0.11, CO calls €0.11

      Turn: 3:spade: (€0.45, 2 players)
      CO goes all-in €0.46, dienaszaglis folds

      CO is 66/5, 67h. Both blinds have about the same stats ~ 60/0

      I`m ahead villains range, but does his stack size play any significant role in this situation?

      FLOP & TURN is very much STD.

      I would not raised that much pf with J9 and my reason for that:
      - even if he plays 60% of his hands, J9 is not really ahead of his range

      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      J9 45.71% 8,699,384,840 659,149,400
      60% 54.29% 10,394,604,704 659,149,400

      and most of your money comes playing postflop expecting him to c/f or c/c with worse hands.
      If you raise pf 0.08$ you leave more room to your postflop bluffs and don´t only have to c-bet once and then give up or putting him all-in.

      Postflop I would play for stacks on the flop, don´t think he has there flush, but with J high I would also fold to his turn shove- I would likely get all-in with KJ and Tx+

      best regards,

      Yeah, I have to dial down my iso-raise range.
