      I just dont know what to think here!
      Should I go for pot control on turn and call hes 3bet and c/b the turn?
      I was sure I have the best hand here, and put him on some overpair or 2 pair on turn, so I was more than happy to go broke here.
      Unfortunatley he showed 99 and put me on tilt, since this is 3x time in arow, that someone shows up with better set when I have one.

      Hello asmirovic,

      Preflop: Since the opponent has only 50BB, I would more likely just Call him, don't like to isolate against such stacks.

      As played
      Flop: The problem with raising here is that not many weaker hands will Call us since the board is pretty dry. So therefore therefore just Calling could be reasonable. But other problem is that we want to get their whole stack on river and I might even consider raising if they are some kind of loose, they could still Call us with some OP.

      As played if flop was Called
      Turn: We definitely have to raise it here to get his whole stack and also I would raise a bit bigger, ~$0.90 and if he minraises us then just try to reraise again and try to get it in. He could easily have there slowplayed AA, KK or even weaker PPs.
      River: Shove for value.

      Best regards.
