      I am not sure if I played this right. On the flop I thought he might have had a 9 but he would have done the same with K3 surely? On the turn I thought, I have top 2 pairs, it has to be an all-in because the villain is very loose. Though it seems that he is passive, so maybe I should have read that he had a 9?

      Hello!

      You should reraise on the flop 3xhis raise. If he shoves, you can probably consider folding. A useful statistic here would be how often he cold calls raises preflop and how often he 3bets on flop.

      As played, I would 4bet flop... but seeing as you haven't got a full stack to start this hand with, you'd be committed to the pot...rebuy to full if you want more flexibility in your game.

      well the blinds are 2/4, I intially bought in for 4 dollar and lost a few blinds previously. I raised 3 BB + 1 for the fact he open limped.

      you can 3-bet flop for value with tptk, he would call there a lot of hands
      if he ahs there 9 then you loose your stack, but a lot of times, he has there worse hand and you should maximise your winnings if you´re ahead
