      yeah, I would raise flop because it's a very risky board, especially with 1 player left to act. And by cbetting so small on flop villain most often has a draw.

      So you get to protect vs draws and get value from them. If he reraises I'm happy to go all in

      Hello JimmyChooEsq,

      Preflop: Raise it up for value here instead of limping. The hand is too strong.

      As played
      Postflop: Raise the flop and protect your hand! We need protection there. But otherwise not much to comment.

      Best Regards.

      Preflop, what changes this from the BSS starting hand chart position of calling in MP or are you saying I should 3 bet?

      Thanks,

      veriz is saying that you should open raise 99, not open limp it, since it is too strong.

      And a little advice, I wouldn't open limp small PP's anymore, either raise them or rather fold them in early position. Because it is very obvious to everyone what you have, I always exploit these open limps of regulars.

      Nope, I meant of course that instead of limping the hand you should be open-raising it. :)
