      fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.60, fold, fold

      BTN wins $0.50

      call 3bet OOP, flop checked T9x, bet 3/4 turn drawy - fold to small raise - BIG BET CAN BE WEAK
      c/c w AT Kxx, check till sd

      BB: 43/0 75h

      he is not folding to 3bets so 3bet is out of question here. Now about calling - vs 40% steal range my K9o has 47% which is why I hate folding so much.

      But the problem I though is the weak kicker which could be domintated. Of course I dominate also his K2+ but with K2 he will not pay me much, while I can loose more vs KJ.

      From SB think more about 3betting than calling. Call only when it's better for BB to join the pot often AND BU won't exploit you having a capped and reasonably defined range.

      K9o is playable against a minraise from in BB in this spot, defnitely not from SB against a 3x. You have 47% equity aproximately against his range but think how much equity edge he gets being IP?
