Hand number 4 for tonight. I'm reasonably happy with how I played this hand. But wondering if there was a better way to go.

Hi Craig,

Yes, 4-bet pre with an eye towards getting the money in imo. Flatting this tiny 3b lets him off the hook for fooling around, and invites the original raiser to take a flop in position on us with his entire range.

As played I would raise the flop. You have the best hand the majority of the time here, but most run outs will devalue your holding and may be scary to his hands that would stack off now like TT-QQ and any 9x he happened to be fooling around with pre.
