      What do you put villian on?
      You don't have stats. Has he been open limping AT+ Kx Qx UTG?

      This is a relatively dry board... only JT gives a decent draw.

      You can represent the K or Q which would beat his small pocket pair.
      This seems like a good place for a continuation bet which is likely higher EV than waiting for your gutshot to hit (and even if it hits it would not be the nut str8)

      hi MeAmor22,
      i have to agree with cyclist52 here. Why not cbet when its been checked to you. you have shown strength preflop and why not continue the story. if he called or rasied your cbet then it gives you a better idea of where you stand in the hand and you can check or fold the turn/river if your hand doesnt improve. i think the small bet on the turn looks very weak. the only hand to really be worried about there is 33 or 77 as kq,ak,qq,kk,aa he probably would of open raised or limp raised preflop.

      im not a hand judge but thats is my 2 cents worth...

      yeah cbet flop is pretty standard here. Why raise 9To pre if you are playing c/f on the flop un-improved?

      As played, you could even call the turn since you pick up a double gutshot and probably have good implied odds with a well disguised draw.

      yeah defo cbet. imo we can only isolate a low potential hand like T9o profitably by playing initiative and position by cbetting boards like this, ie i wouldn't iso this on sb

      as played call turn, we have a double gutshot! i guess it just went unnoticed :D

      Hello MeAmor22,

      Preflop: What's with the isolation raise size? Weak hand = small raise?

      As played
      Postflop: CB and gain fold equity? You had the initiative and even have a draw, so CB for fold equity with also having position.

      Best Regards.
