      His flop raise was small so didn't think he was super strong. I considered 3Betting but could I really get any worse hands to call?
      Turn bet was small - could he be semi bluffing KQ/89? Would he do this with AJ/JT ?

      Hi Matt,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Some regs like to raise TPTK for thin value like this but if we don't have any reads about that just yet calling flop is fine. On the turn we can look at putting in a small raise for value but if he shoves he puts us in a tough spot because I doubt he'd do that with TP so I think we can fold.
