      Hi.

      Preflop 3bet could be fine, to isolate the fish. I think you can actually just bet/fold the Flop. You represent an overpair when you 3bet and bet here, yet he checkraises you on what seems to be a really wet board where he could easily have a bunch of monsters like sets, 67, combodraws like JdTd etc.

      I am fine with bet/folding with such limited information. A9 is also close to the bottom of our value range so it is fine to just give up here.

      If you call, the Turn isn't too good of a card. If he had been bluff checkraising with stuff like straight draws, he has you beat now. QT has a straight, JT and QJ has top pair now.

      Thanks.

      Oh sorry about that, kept thinking it was NL10.

      That changes things a little (your range is not as strong as it would be). With that said, given that the board is hyper coordinated (most important point why we should bet/fold) and we are going to stick with the basic assumption that this guy is probably on the passive side, we should still bet/fold here.

      If the board was T95 with a flush draw, and we had AT, then I would probably advocate bet/calling the Flop and taking a turn card. But I think there are just way too many value combos from villain (he can have sets, twopairs, straights etc).
