      MP: $10.20 (102 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 9 T
      MP folds, CO raises to $0.26, Hero calls $0.26, SB calls $0.21, BB calls $0.16

      Flop: ($1.04) 9 4 5 (4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, CO bets $0.78, Hero raises to $2.53, SB calls $2.53, 2 folds

      Turn: ($6.88) 7 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $3.44, SB folds

      $6.88 pot ($0.34 rake)
      Final Board: 9 4 5 7
      Hero mucked 9 T and won $6.54 ($3.75 net)
      SB mucked and lost (-$2.79 net)

      PF I call in position because I believe I can outplay my opponents postflop.

      Flop I raise to get value with my TP + FD, trying to get my stack in.

      Turn should I have bet or checked behind?

      Hey Tommygecko,

      Preflop call is fine.

      On the flop I think the best play is simply to call. You have a ton of equity. If I did raise, I'd raise smaller.

      By raising your hand to this size you are turning it into a bluff, because a hand worse than 9x won't call that often. Your hand is too strong to turn into a bluff here imo.

      On the turn I'd probably bet for protection and really thin value just incase opponent did call flop with a draw. I'd bet like $2.
