      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?

      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.
