      It's just been one of those days (don't let my stack size fool you), this was my biggest losses of the day... hard to put either opponent on A4. Kind of figured I can't really get away from this, didn't want to 3bet pre cause I'm OOP, maybe I should have gone for check-raise on the flop?

      Full Tilt - $0.10 NL RUSH (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      Hero (SB): $29.50
      BB: $13.44
      UTG: $13.03
      MP: $6.31
      CO: $12.97
      BTN: $10.41

      Hero posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has 9:club: 9:diamond:

      fold, MP raises to $0.20, fold, BTN calls $0.20, Hero calls $0.15, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.80, 4 players) 5:club: 2:spade: 9:spade:
      Hero bets $0.40, BB calls $0.40, MP calls $0.40, fold

      Turn: ($2.00, 3 players) 3:diamond:
      Hero bets $1.80, BB raises to $4.20, MP raises to $5.71 and is all-in, Hero raises to $28.90 and is all-in, BB calls $8.64 and is all-in

      River: ($33.39, 3 players) J:diamond:

      Hero shows 9:club: 9:diamond: (Three of a Kind, Nines) (PreFlop 56%, Flop 69%, Turn 17%)
      BB shows 4:spade: A:spade: (Straight, Five High) (PreFlop 28%, Flop 28%, Turn 81%)
      MP shows 3:club: 3:spade: (Three of a Kind, Threes) (PreFlop 16%, Flop 2%, Turn 2%)
      BB wins $31.39

      it happens...
      calling preflop is fine, as against 2 players your 3-bet would look like a squeeze and you don't want to call a 4-bet with 99 oop.

      on flop you probably want to bet more to protect against draws (flush) and to build value, around 6 bb. If anyone has an OP or hit a pair or even better - set, they will call.
      turn is wp. You cant fold there. Pot is around 30 bucks and you have to pay 10 - probability that an opp holds A4 there is definitely lower than 30%.

      Hello keithbrad,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Preflop: Pretty standard set-mine spot.
      Flop: Nah, I wouldn't really say that I am Check/Raising here while we are in multiway pot we can't expect that often to get CBet here anyways. But it would be possible if we are hoping MP to have some kind of overpair. Although when you are CBetting then I would do it definitely bigger like $0,70 for being in such a multiway pot and as well have to protect from any kind of draws.
      Turn: Basically there is not much to do, they may as well have a lot worse sets/overpairs and not only A4 or 64, while 64 ain't that likely. So I am as well going broke here.

      Best regards.
