      Preflop: Pretty loose to raise J9s from MP :f_frown:

      As played: Maybe I could have bet the flop a bit bigger. Probably the turn a bit bigger too, to be all-in by the river.

      Hi Feverfew,

      Preflop: I agree with you that for FR (even though there are only 8 players) it's a bit lose to open J9ss from HJ although if the guys behind us are nitty (mainly CO/BTN) with fish in the blinds it's fine.

      In this case though it appears that at least BTN is on the fishier side (stack size) in which case I don't like our open as much.

      As played I'd bet 0.3 or so on the flop and the turn looks fine. Even if he doesn't raise you still have a comfortable shove on the river.
