      Raise pre-flop for value. Raise flop for value.

      well, not sure how much value is there preflop with 9 high :f_biggrin:
      we mostly just want to take the initiative which usually makes things cooler. but what's his fold to cbets/so on...

      flop make it .11 at least :f_biggrin: maybe could make it higher but my first aim would be to keep them both in, allows for the pot to be built much quicker.

      Hello Imimba1,

      Preflop: Both options are fine, especially if we want to get another loose opponents in the pot. Also the UTG doesn't even have a full stack so it shouldn't be a problem to get his whole stack if needed. Nor we of course can't raise 9 high for value.

      As played
      Postflop: Raise it up and protect your hand, they are loose enough to Call with worse hands and even draws.

      Best Regards.
