      Preflop: 3-betting this preflop for sure in SB. In BB, it depends on what the average opening range of a typical NL25 player is in the BU.

      The range you suggested is way too tight vs a min-raising range, and I will definitely defend all KX and AX. Of course, it really depends on postflop skill and how confident you are in your game.

      In fact, I would say that I'm only folding 30% in BB vs a BU min-raise (call 50-55% and 3-bet 15-20%). I would suggest defending at least 50% of your range at the very least.

      Turn is a bet, and I think you can bet the River too for value against 9X and Ace highs.
