      I suppose it's a borderline call even though he's 3betting 15%. I think this is a better hand to call and play IP with then 4bet bluff though?

      Then on the flop I decide to go with it, because I can't see many better hands he has here. Some overpairs and draws too. JJ and maybe 88,99?

      Hi Jules,

      Preflop: I'd have to agree with you that's it's borderline at best. We really don't have much info about villain and what he 3-bets.

      What's our plan postflop? Steal pots from him? How do we play when we hit a 9 or J or draw?

      As played I like our raise because, as you said, he will rarely hit that board except for JJ and QT. He will go broke with his overpairs and NFD/KQ type hands.

      The plan postflop was try and steal the pot IP, assuming he's going to plya pretty straightforward.

      I think hitting a 9 or a J it wouldn't really matter too much and still try to steal the pot on weakness. I think I'd probably play draws aggressively, but probably (hopefully) not go with the hand too often if he wants to because I'll often be dominated?

      It really depends on our draw (if it's just OESD/FD or combo draw).

      But mostly we wouldn't want to go broke with J high draw on the flop. For example if it's something like 257 dd.
