I believe you did not thoroughly read my last post. Otherwise, I have no idea why you keep saying that I'm encouraging novices to play it because I made an initially unclear point quite clear in that post, and that point had nothing to do with encouraging such a thing. If anything, I'm simply discouraging the belief that K9 is that bad of a hand. That's all I'm doing.
And, besides, you're completely ignoring when I've said the following:
"these purposes both require plenty of experience and knowledge as well as hand-reading skills to pull off properly, so if you're looking to play straightforward, it's best to muck facing an early or mid position raise. "
"tight players should avoid playing it altogether."
Like, not to come across as a jerk, but it's pretty frustrating when I put in the effort to write a long, insightful post, and people keep overlooking these things and thus keep thinking I'm implying things that I'm actually not. Please read more carefully so I don't have to repeat myself...
