      Hi,
      Is it too loose to open-raise with K9 from CO?
      After I flop the 2nd nuts, I guess it's ok not to be afraid of AK and go broke, right?

      Thanks!

      It depends, depends of the opponents behind you, of your table image, but its ok I also like to play loose on SH.

      Obviously go broke.
      AK is unlikely anyway since he just called preflop. If he did that, he made a mistake.

      It depends on the table and your image but personally I'm not a fan of raising K9o there (which doesn't mean I don't do it from time to time). If they were suited I would like it more :)

      Fold it pf. this hand has very low chances to improve and even if you do hit tp, you have a bad kicker and you can't be sure if it's good until SD.
