Nearly made a video HA question but went back to my note.

Q) Can the villain's hand be ranged considering the action.

Range sb calling my btn raise?.. They x/c flop, turn checks, lead river A9dd? -

A) no

I wasn't even close. Is this another betting a busted draw? OK put my hands up, loose call.

Maybe 9 out kicked on a double paired board but anything 77 or Jx draw is value x/r flop or leading turn?

PS. Ooops forgot a nit with 99.

Hey Forrest

Why are we 3betting Q9s vs V6? Any specific reads?

V2 seems recreational to me when I see they are not topping-up. But after they call our 3bet OOP, I smell trouble. I think his hand is too good to fold yet too weak to 4bet. Given that assumption I would range him on: {AQ, AJs, ATs, KQs, JJ, TT, 99, 88, 77} I'm inclined to check back this flop because we can't stand a x/r here and we don't have a big hand to protect anyways and we can go for a delayed cbet. We need to be good atleast 27% of the time to make the call OTR. If they're betting river with 1 combo of AdQd and all combos of KQs, AJs, JJ, TT, 99, 77 then calling is very slim but if we remove TT forexample since its a hand they'd probably check with SD value then calling is correct because of the board runout which makes it less likely they would have a Jx, 99, or 77.
