      Preflop i think i would just call his initial raise as you can see a cheap flop and if you hit a set you may get paid, and also you are OOP, but when he 4-bets he is showing alot of strength, so when he shoves i think he has a higher overpair than you.

      If you're not comfortable to go AI/call with 99 on this flop, then why do you call a 4 bet? Just to hit a set is pretty ambitious esp. against half stacked opponent. I would shove this pre vs 4bet since turning 99 into a bluff is kinda weird, we may do the same (3bet fold) with worse hands, another option is just to call but with similair board texture you will have to continue anyway.

      Hello Wacko118,

      It's rather a question why do you even Call his 4bet? If you want to continue preflop and you consider him having a very wider 4bet range then I'd just get it in or fold the hand. No point to Call it. Also even if you called then going broke postflop as well.

      Best regards.
