Iso raising limpers with K9s is fine(but since when where iso raising our hand doesnt really matter that much since where mostly just looking to take it down prf or with a cbet, obvs having a hand that has ok equity cant hurt though ), i still dont like limping with it since where just not gonna hit flops like this that often, more often when we actualy flop something its gonna be middle pair with the 9 or a bad TP where we have to worry about beeing outkicked and thats not even going into how hard it is to get stacks in in a limped pot unless its a cooler so we are gonna strugle to get alot of value when we do get a flop like this.
Or to put it in simple terms, Every time u limp baby kittens die!
Basicly u want 2 out 3 things to continue with a hand(like all rules there are exceptions, like set mining).
Inititive,beeing the prf raiser/3bettor-We dont have it here.
Position- We have it.
A good hand- We dont have it.
There is nothing u can do about your position or the hand your dealt but u can allways take the initive .
As for him showing up with AK, it doesnt really matter, he is gonna have JT or 89 way more often so folding when where beat by 12(dicounted) combos of AK when we beat circa 84562165 of his other possible combos would be pretty horrid imo.
