      Hello,

      I think having this guy on the blinds, we could skip raising J9o unless we have a plan how to outplay him postflop.

      Checking behind on the flop is fine. It's hard to get called by worse here, neither a better hand is folding.

      On the turn, calling is fine. We have OESD and a pair.

      As played, I think you could go for a raise/fold on the river and I'd make it around $0.7 here.

      Best,

      Hi!

      So when you have fish behind you and you think you will be called by them, it´s better to be more tight?, and fold speculatibe hands like J9?
