I'm not giving a cutoff's pf raise credit for AK every time. You're ahead here (probably up against a PP that is lower than KK or maybe A9).

Edit: Oops, I see he mini-raised pf. You're ahead. Push the turn.

How about a value bet on the river? One of those way ahead way behind spots.

You bet 150 or something on the river (half blocking/half value) - sometimes he folds a better hand (rarely), pushes a better hand, calls with a worse hand.

There is always the chance that he'll push with a worse hand, but there is also the chance that he bets big enough that you can't call on the river too.

The MTT'r in me wants to either

A: Check raise the flop and fold to a push, or
B: Lead out the flop.

How bad are these options?

You play better players than I do Scuba...

but where I play I'd get calls from mid-pairs and occassionally Ace high from bad players....on the river I mean...

...I think I see what you're thinking now though...

Would you bet the turn if your top pair was lower than a King....Say if you had K9 for top pair w/your nine?

In your situation, I would have folded K9 preflop. Note that in this hand, I called a raise.

Looks good I think. You know what a big fan I am of leading out but in this case it looks really good.
