I originally posted this scenario a couple years ago but with KTo. A very reputable forum member suggested that not raising a hand like K7o would be a mistake. However, I just reread the responses and I just figured out that he thought the HJ had folded. I thought raising K7o was crazy too but I wanted to see what you smart people thought.

While I have you, would you raise K9o in the original situation?

Can't wait to see how this turns out since this is probably one of several leaks for me. Offsuit king....maybe raising a J, certainly raising a Q. a T is my current tipping point.

Re: Pre flop check up posts.

Really depends on hj range since it’s the only variable.

Fact is the average players per flop is gonna be 3+, and since the blinds are small, you need to realize a larger portion of the pot. So I don’t think it makes sense to raise some hands like K9o, which I would raise on the button vs two limps. I would raise KT in the described kill pot.

I would raise KTo and fold K9o.

If the kill acts in turn and checks then I would consider raising K9 with that extra bit of info about his hand.

Re: Pre flop check up posts.

SB is a nitty TAG,

BB is loose but doesn't always defend. He is fairly uncombative post but will make a raise to see where your at...He has folded to a 3 bet a couple times in spots like this. He is fairly sticky.

Folded to me on the button.....Should I be cutting out of the lower suited connector hands given my description of BB? What is the worst suited connector you would open with? 45s? How about not suited? 89o?

Seems like K9o should be close to a raise as well. It's not doing bad equity wise, has some connectivity and we are on the button.

I wouldn’t adjust my default range.
