      Playing with J9o OOP is bad enough, so I don't recommend it.

      As played, betting flop is fine, I like your sizing, but when the heart comes on turn, it just hits your opponent's range too well. I would check/fold there, or check/call, if I know that my opponent floats alot.

      River is bad too, so against a bigger bet I'd give up. You just can't fold on that bet, you get too good odds and good reads on his sizing with a hit.

      Hello DarkBlade282,

      Preflop: Against what kind of opponent are you against?
      Postflop: As long you are getting that good odds should be fine for note taking, though I don't see you being far-far ahead there that often. :) More rather he bets for thin value like with Kx.

      Best Regards.
