      Hero checks, MP3 bets $0.26, Hero calls $0.26. just check called here because I think he could easily have AJ or A9

      Hero checks, MP3 checks. check good or should I lead?

      Preflop: 3bet

      Don't look at AJ9 flop and think 'oh no, he could have AJ or A9'. First to act on the flop, you can't narrow villain down to two possible hands. Of course he can have these hands, but it's more correct to think in terms of his possible preflop holdings, and your flop equity vs this range.

      Example:

      JcAs9h

      AcKc: 73.067%
      66+, ATs+, KTs+, QTs+, JTs, T9s, AJo+, KQo: 26.933%

      At this point you have to figure out the most profitable line vs his range and tendencies. On this board, checking is best since it gives MP3 a chance to value bet worse hands and bluff with air. Sometimes he has Jx, QQ, KK and checks behind. But that's fine, since he has very few outs and you can still get 2 streets of value.

      Turn and river are fine, the fact the he folded just means he had nothing.
