      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($10.05)
      BB ($10)
      UTG ($21.04)
      CO ($8.18)
      Hero ($21.51)

      villain unknown
      i usually 3b a more polarised range, but i think its ok to 3b 99 IP, or should i be calling more in this spot?
      standard line postflop? or can i cbet since i mostly rep overs or PP, also i dont think i get a lot of folds on this board, even though villain is OOP.

      Dealt to Hero 9:heart: 9:spade:

      UTG calls $0.10, CO raises to $0.40, Hero raises to $1.20, fold, fold, fold, CO calls $0.80

      FLOP ($2.65) 9:club: 2:diamond: 6:spade:

      CO checks, Hero checks

      TURN ($2.65) 9:club: 2:diamond: 6:spade: 8:spade:

      CO checks, Hero bets $1.75, CO calls $1.75

      RIVER ($6.15) 9:club: 2:diamond: 6:spade: 8:spade: J:diamond:

      CO bets $0.60, Hero raises to $10.10, CO calls $4.63 (AI)

      CO shows J:heart: 7:spade:
      (Pre 29%, Flop 3.2%, Turn 18.2%)

      Hero shows 9:heart: 9:spade:
      (Pre 71%, Flop 96.8%, Turn 81.8%)

      Hero wins $15.80

      I'd be more inclined to flat pre and try to get UTG in the hand so that when we make a set we can win more.

      Are you 3-betting 99 for value vs UTG+1's isolating range?

      I dont think its a mistake to check the flop. He probably doenst put 99 in your range and after you check back, I think he's stacking off with any overpair for sure. As long as you raise any turn that he leads. You could C-bet whilst in position but I think it is better to allow him to bluff or value-bet worse hands on the turn.

      Yes its for value, i also think CO will iso the limper fairly wide as UTG is a fish. So i will 3b light in position against his iso raises a lot, because i can usually take it down pre. Also i am raising a polarised range so much i thought it might be ok to balance a bit as 99 is usually not in my 3b range

      Hello dannywratten,

      Preflop: Not a huge fan of 3betting here. I mean why should you? At the best for you it's a coinflip if you get it in vs him. Why not play it postflop in smaller pot and decide what you gonna do there? You can as well play the hand postflop as strong overpair or either set value.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to add, I would most likely play the same way, might even induce him to bet the turn.

      Best Regards.
