      I didn't have the best feeling on the flop, but UTG2 and MP2 were real fish at the table, so that's why I decided to go broke with TPTK.

      Hi burek2000,

      I would fold pre-flop or shove accordingly. Whenever you hit a King, you ahve to worry about your kicker, if you hit a nine as TP, you can worry about other things (draws, sets etc.)

      It's more marginal than profitable and as played, I think TPTK here is no good, you got 0% FE since Mp2 calls too making the pot bigger against your shove.

      I go for the shove here if you really want to play K9s ;)
      Best regards,
      Gerv
