This is a discussion on $2 NLHE 6-max: Q9s limp from BB after SB limps within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; Not a great hand all in all but something I tagged as bad, so I thought I'd put it up to review
Winning Poker Network (Yatahay)
Flop:(3 BB, 3 players) T♣ Q♦ 4♦
SB checks, Hero checks, CO bets 1 BB, SB raises to 3 BB, Hero raises to 7 BB, CO raises to 11 BB, fold, Hero raises to 75.5 BB and is all-in, fold

Don't love getting it all in with top pair and not the greatest kicker, but villain is definitely a fish. The problem with trying to rep a set, is anyone this fishy at 2nl is pretty low level thinking (even if he's not a complete idiot). Players like this are rarely thinking about what you have, or what you're representing, more just looking at what they have.
Only four hands, but you can see hes a fish, he could show up with worse but I'd prefer a bigger sample to see just how likely he is turning up with complete crap. Wouldn't try and get it all in here.

re: Poker & $2 NLHE 6-max: Q9s limp from BB after SB limps
I might raise this preflop on occasion.
As played, I really don't think we're ahead when we overbet-shove the flop. We only have TPMK but we're repping a set. Frankly, I'm amazed you took it down.
As an aside, why are you not topping up to the table max on each hand? You're missing value on big hands that way. Or was this a capped table?

Honestly I just don't really think about it. I think there is an automated seeing for it so I'll look into it.
