      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.7 by www.pokerstrategy.cc.

      Well, I know this was probably played badly, but how ought one play a hand such as this? The opponent ended up with a full house (pocket 9's).

      dont min raise on the flop, raise it up to 4.50, then go all in on the turn

      I'd fold PF.

      You have a very vulnerable hand on the flop. There are a load of cards that can either outdraw you or kill your action here. So on the flop I'd make at least a psb and 3 bet AI to any raise.

      BTW, it is a good idea to include stack sizes . I have assumed 100BB effective stacks.

      preflop a fold should be best. but there is no big mistake in calling it. you just have to know how to handle marginal hands postflop, especially oop. if you cant do that, just fold it.
