      Hello Maartinss!

      Welcome to the hand evaluations forum! Great to see you started here :)

      Looking at your hand, we have a $1.83 starting stack which is close to $2 and that means we are sitting here with a bigstack. I am not sure if you double up from 40 big blinds which is equivalent to the midstack strategy

      Anyways we have pocket nines preflop, great! so far so good.

      On the flop we have an overpair so we bet here, the BB calls here.

      The Queen is not a good card on the Turn. We only bet here to get value out of draws and that means we are often going to showdown on the River.

      So this River would be a check back since we are never betting for value there

      Best regards,
