      I would much rather prefer flatting 99 pre vs an unknown opponent. I don't like to 3b/fold vs unknown and I don't like 3b/shove either. Which is why I prefer calling however lame it may be to play postflop OOP.

      I don't see much point in barreling turn. From my experience this rarely works out good in most cases. Players often tend to either fold flop or call flop & turn in 3b pots, as far as I can tell.

      I don't really know his calling range preflop cuz i see people do this with all sorts of crap but if he doesnt wanna let go to your cb then im almost always done with the hand vs unknowns.

      pre - you 3bet for value
      post - you played like you 3bet for bluff

      So start by thinking on this first so you don't mess up postflop with hard decisions.After you bet flop,he is calling Jx,QQ+(if he flat)and TT sometimes 77-88.77-88 is not calling turn barrel,so everything that will call your turn barrel have you crushed with 95 % eq.Ch/f turn+river

      If you´re going to barrel turn I think you should shove that river card
      He would likely not call twice with worse hands on the turn and he would fold Jx, Qx to your river shove
