      hmm, on the flop raise to about $3 and get it in on the flop/turn as you can. There's draws to protect from and value to be had. Also you are in a multiway pot in position, so playing passively just gives other people chances to improve and beat you.

      Difficult. I think raising the flop is safest but the board is not that co-ordinated so flat calling isn't super bad. It's just that the 9 is really a horrid card for you on the turn and that's why raising is a marginally better option to protect and get value, imo.

      I think you have to push turn as played in case our opponents have only a straight draw. set over set is a cooler - nothing to worry about - it's rare enough.
