K9 suited is a horrible hand because it ends up being such a big RIO (reverse implied odds
When the board hits K X X.... you end up bleeding money to better kings.
When the board hits Q J T.... You get anally raped by AK
basically, I find there's little difference between K9s and K5s. Essentially they are just both FD hands in which you are hoping to hit. So if you have great odds to draw then fine draw. But K9s in and of itself isn't a good hand by any stretch. I auto fold K9s everywhere accept HJ, CO, or BTN. And I rarely if ever call a raise with K9s even if in position. I would need insanely good direct and implied odds to play K9s in a raised pot.
