      You are probably ahead the hands that beat you are Q with higher kicker and or pocket 9.

      I would call the raise. check/call on the turn and value bet on the river.


      The villain is probably on A9 or pocket 10+.


      I'd be interested to see what a more expert opinion would have to say.

      Hey SYJ,

      I would prefer to check/raise this flop to give opponent a chance to bluff, because I think many opponents will try to steal limp with any 2 and many PPs, 9x and JT will still pay you off. If villain would check behind then I bet PS on the turn.

      As played, hero goes broke. There's no way to fold trips for 20BBs.

      Regards,
