      NL Holdem $0.30(BB) Replayer
      SB ($30)
      BB ($66.90)
      UTG ($30.61)
      Hero ($44.84)
      BTN ($21.87)

      Dealt to Hero 9:heart: 9:spade:

      UTG raises to $0.90, Hero calls $0.90, fold, fold, BB raises to $4.20, fold, Hero calls $3.30

      FLOP ($9.45) K:diamond: 4:diamond: 4:spade:

      BB bets $5.70, Hero calls $5.70

      TURN ($20.85) K:diamond: 4:diamond: 4:spade: 5:club:

      BB checks, Hero checks

      RIVER ($20.85) K:diamond: 4:diamond: 4:spade: 5:club: A:diamond:

      BB checks, Hero checks

      BB was very aggressive player, he had 3-bet 3 times my steal, I had always folded. Okay the problem is that I am not preflop raiser, I just call UTG raise, so when UTG raiser folds I can't call, I can't really 4-bet either because our hand really looks what it is. Middlepair which is not very good to 3-bet, but feels good to 4-bet?

      So 3-bet agains UTG raiser to avoid squeeze? As played fold?

      What you think, If I had QQ and just call UTG raise and 4-bet squeeze agains BB?

      As played, how would you play postflop?

      I´d call ip with 99, since you´re a littlebit deep, you have position and there isn´t really any point 4-betting that spot to 99 and then get all-in

      So 3-bet agains UTG raiser to avoid squeeze? As played fold?
      - call is fine, bb isn´t going to squeeze every single time and even if he does you can call with 99 and play pot ip

      What you think, If I had QQ and just call UTG raise and 4-bet squeeze agains BB?
      - if you feel BB is going to squeeze and get all-in pf with JJ/TT, then it should be fine play

      As played, how would you play postflop?
      - calling flop and then checking down is one option. I´d likely would still bet/fold turn ip to protect my equity against hands that are going to c/f like AQ/AJ. 8-9$ bet should make the work
