      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (6 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop

      MP ($27.80)
      limp/call 62%


      Gerv (CO) ($57.25)
      Button ($50)
      SB ($57.65)
      BB ($24.85)


      UTG ($91.70)

      Preflop: Gerv is CO with 9, K
      1 fold, MP calls $0.50, Gerv bets $2.25, 2 folds, BB calls $1.75, MP calls $1.75

      Flop: ($7) 8, 7, 9 (3 players)
      BB checks, MP bets $4.50, Gerv raises $13, 2 folds


      In retrospect I found this raise on the Flop quite marginal. The reasoN I made this raise was because I don't want to see a lot of Turn cards and despite his relative passive aggression (194 =/= sample) I expected a followup donkbet on the Turn due the drawheaviness of the board.

      My main dilemma was to Raise/Fold or Raise/Call but seeing his stacksize, it is inevitable to play Raise/call right?

      How would you play this hand?

      Oh and preflop is marginal as well, I ran the numbers:

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 45.103 % 42.849 % 4.507 % 52.644 % Kd9h
      Player 2: 54.897 % 52.644 % 4.507 % 42.849 % 55+, A2s+, K3s+, Q6s+, J7s+, T7s+, 97s+, 87s, A4o+, K8o+, Q9o+, J9o+, T9o
      So is folding pre a better solution?

      isolating against K9 is fine, since you can also take pot down without improving your hand
      I also like raising flop and getting all-in against one if the players. if both of them shove then likely it is fold
