Default Re: J9s - Open Limp, Cold Call, Donk - Every street needs comments

I will limp with this as long as I have a fair shot at not getting raised. I would be happier if I had limpers ahead of me. Preflop isn't the end of the world though.

I am happily letting this go for two bets on the flop. You DID get raised and coldcalled preflop (there are plenty of overpairs possible); if any spade any size comes you are dead (that's 1/3 of the time) even if you aren't already; a safe ten coming might only be a split; etc etc etc. There is simply nothing good that can happen to your hand short of a runner runner full house.

You like the king? why? Didn't anyone who raised but didn't already have an overpair just get one? The one thing that DOESN'T surprise me is that you got popped back on the turn.

Looks like an extremely expensive hand to me 90% of the time.
