Default The Usual Suspects

Hello everyone,

I've been rereading some of the hand quizes in SSHE. One goes like this:
You have black queens in middle position, one player limps, you raise. Two
players cold call and the BB calls. The flop is K [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] 9 [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] 7 [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]
the BB bets and the limper folds (11.5 small bets). What should you do?

In the text they argue for raising....since you have a [img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], you have a
backdoor flush draw.....since you have this draw, you shouldn't fold and
thus if you don't fold you need to protect your hand......

I've been thinking about my experiences in Pacific Poker .25/.5. The players
are quite homogenous. The "usual suspect" at these tables NEVER bets
or raises a flush or straight draw. The "usual suspect" NEVER bets a middle or low pair. In this situation, almost certainly the BB has a king. Shouldn't
you fold this hand at almost all loose passive microlimit tables?
