      Hey FactoriusX,

      Usually with 2 shortstackers in the blinds I would open-raise a little smaller. 2.5x will do.

      I like flop-raise, I would make it $0.40.

      Turn is actually a bad card for you, both in the sense that diamond-draws are a legitimate part of either villain's range, and also because if either opponent did hold a worse 9x they are going to hate this turn card and not call a larger bet.

      Therefore, best turn option is to bet a lot smaller. We are talking $0.60 or so, and fold to a raise. Another alternative would be to check back here and go for value on the river, but I think it's good to bet to avoid giving free cards to any random diamonds out there.
