      Hi, just wondering if I was right to get it all in here? I just thought that there couldn't be much beating me because of the gap which needed between Q9, the only hand really beating me (i basically didn't think Q9 was in his range for calling from the BB - is this a correct assumption?)

      Preflop: I suppose the small raise is fine vs a 55bb stack

      Flop: Cbet is fine with the weak gutshot but c/f is also fine

      Turn: Q9 is definitely in his range but who cares? You have the 2nd nuts vs a 55bb stack. I don't see how you can avoid losing all your money here.

      I'm certainly defending Q9o in BvB all the time vs a 3bb raise, and when you min-raise it becomes an even clearer call preflop with that hand.

      Nice hand.
