      Flop: Should I raise bigger here?

      Turn: Should I raise the here again? For some reason, during the hand, I got worried that he had made trips and I think thats why I only called.

      Hello Jeffers16,

      For the given reason that the 2nd 9 on turn makes him unlikely to have a set there, I'd even consider playing for stacks there. He will very often come out with Jx there for the given reason that his betting pattern is saying that he has a weak hand there, likely something like a Jx.

      Best regards.
