      Villain is 19/15/1.5 over 83 hands

      I didn't expect a call from BU, that's why I made the small raise on the flop as I assumed I would be able to play the hand IP against him.
      I'm a little surprised by BU's call and I now think that his range is mostly composed of straights because I assume he will be more aggresively with 2 pair /sets.
      I am happy to get it in on flop as I still have 35% eq against 9T and I crush the rest of his range but after his call?
      C/f river? B/f turn?

      I think you need to raise bigger on flop - more like $10-11.

      As played, once we get called by 2 players turn is not a good card since villains have 55/56s etc. I might even consider checking behind turn to see if we can spike a fh, and decide on river if we face aggression.

      I agree, though, that villain rarely slowplays 2pair/set on flop.

      Like how you played it.
      You can raise more, but don´t really want to scare off two pair hands, so I think making it to 6.5$ is fine
      I´d also b/c turn, since don´t really see players b/c too many times with idiot end straight draw. More likely they have there 9x, rather than 5x
