      Hey Natrilis,

      Defending preflop is ok. Q9s is a little on the weak-side since you only min-raised and villain makes it 4x, but should be profitable vs a wide 3etter.

      You should rarely be folding to a cbet, even if you miss. Given that you have a flush-draw, both flatting and raising are legitimate option. Given your stat on villains fold-to-flop-raise, raising is fine.

      The question on turn is....what worse hands are calling? Presumably none. I'd either check back or bet very small ($4) for protection/thin-value and think about calling a raise. It's much better to put the money in by calling when you have a bluffcatcher and decent draw.
