      Never is my answer. I would always fold A9o from MP. :f_biggrin:

      I prefer K8s, J9s type hands instead of the weak offsuit ace.

      Okay cool :D . Learned a lot here ;)

      EDIT: When you open to play vs a fish in the blinds... I learned that high cards rise in value and the value of pretty hands (J9s) decreases. What about this?

      Suited high cards FTW. A9o sucks in equity. Your pairs are quite weak both time and are usually not worth 3 streets even when they are top pairs. Change your hand to K8s and you have flushdraw equity as extra. Way more valuable that flopping TP on Axx or Kxx.
