      The history before this hand is that I recently joined the table, we played about 30 hands, and this guy seemed to have a personal grudge against me, because every time he limped in front of me, I had some kind of a hand and raised him. That's why I thought he was raising against me with a wide range, and decided to call IP with A9s. Is this an ok play?
      Any mistakes postflop?

      I don't mind defending my blind against this fish, especially when I'm IP.

      Your post-flop line is good only bet a little bigger on the turn & river (and if you bet more on the turn you can bet more on the river. Turn 2,5$, pot is 5,8$. River 3.8$.

      Nice hand.

      Well, I also don't mind doing it :) but this time didn't think I had any fold equity against him, and since I had position and a hand which had a chance to hit, preferred to call
