      Hello DarkBlade282,

      Preflop: Fold preflop? You can rarely hit much with your hand there.

      As played
      Postflop: Difficult to say without even knowing the guy, as said you made already a mistake preflop by calling even for the given odds. Just doesn't make sense cause the hand rarely hits huge hand and never know even where you stand for example if you hit your flush. Rather I'd say just a loose call-down here whilst he could easily value-bet 9x the same way, you beat just bluffs.

      Best Regards.
