    Hi jsguo,

    Pre flop - It is best not to limp under the gun, it's a raise or fold for me. Now it folds around, to a raise from the big blind. We have position so I call not that excited.

    Post flop - Your bet sizing are just under 1/2 pot. This gives a good price for the villain to call. So I would suggest bigger bets up-to 3/4 pot.

      Personally I like this moderate bet OTF to exploit the villain, who is likely to have two overcards (seems unnaturally small, though. $0.40, maybe?). The board texture seems safe for us, we won't be dog OTT.
      I'll make a larger (3/4 or pot-sized) bet OTT, for the same reason as ForrestFive's. If the villain calls and the situation OTR is the same, I would fold.

      preflop I fold.

        Hi jsquo,

        Definitely fold preflop with such a weak hand from the worst position at the table. In general I would raise or fold first in, and this hand is squarely in the fold category... playing it will leak money in the long run.

        Post flop sizings can be a bit bigger, but when the preflop raiser check/calls rather than c-bets, he's most likely got a weak or marginal showdown value type hand, so making big bets like 75% pot is not likely to get called. When targeting a weak range for value, the smaller bets are fine since weak hands can't easily call big bets.

        The river is precarious at best. When the villain takes this line, c/c, c/c, bomb river for a big bet, he's going to have made a flush such a high % of the time that I'm not sure it's profitable to call him. Still, it's not out of the question that he's making a weird bluff once in a while or made some strong non-flush hand like a rivered set of 3's, so we should probably not call this bet often but should have some calling range... and since T9 is at the absolute top of our range here and does beat hands as strong as sets, I would bite the bullet and make the crying call too.
