      Why does poker hate me? Another 3 BI gone.

      This same situation has happened constantly today, I'm scared to play a set.

      flat call or raise?

      Full Tilt Poker $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em - 5 players

      SB: $5.43
      BB: $2.84
      UTG: $5.00

      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.15, SB raises to $0.45, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.30

      Flop: ($0.95) 2:spade: 7:spade: 9:heart: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.75, Hero raises to $1.50, SB raises to $4.98 all in, Hero calls $3.48

      Turn: ($10.91) 8:spade: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      Hi Sketchzr,

      Preflop: Using the rule of 20 you barely have a call here although we have position so we may be able to steal some pots we don't hit.

      Postflop: As played raise bigger on the flop. Why are all of your raises a min raise?

      If opponent is playing something like AK I think pocket 9's can be decent enough to play in position, and if they have overpair and I hit a set I can take their full stack, otherwise I think I'd just fold on a bad flop.

      I think it's a habit as I usually use minraise to get a call out of the opponent or in hope that they re-raise me all-in.
