      Should I have raised for value at any given point?

      I felt that on that board I wouldnt be very happy to see the initial raisor coming over the top at the river. Also I had a player on the btn which was flat calling every street.

      Also what do you think of calling one street on a T9x board with KQ at the flop?

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      Calling the flop is close here, since we have a player behind, but we do have gutshot, two overcards and backdoor flush draw so I'm ok with it.

      As played on the flop, you could consider raising the turn.

      On the river I think you could go for a small raise here, but calling is fine too.

      Best,
      Plamen
