      Hi.

      Flop is a bet/call, fishes love raising paired Flops.

      Turn is defnitely a call given the small size. He could definitely take this line with 9X some % of the time.

      River is an easy call too. I don't think raising really serves any purpose here.

      Thanks.

      I wasn't planning on raising just wanted to make sure it wasn't bad to call down. Had he bet something like 5+ on turn I was planning to fold.

      Well I would base that on his AF. If it's low I think c/f turn is fine. Turn card also completes QT so that makes me a little afraid of straights.

      I also think his small size could mean a worse value hand, which is why i am never folding here.
