      Your title said 99 so I read the hand and thought "well the 4x pre says more AK to me... why wouldn't you raise the flop? Wow, great turn bet. What the hell river check?!"

      So yeah, that's what I think of playing 99 on that board.

      With TT, however, I think your line is fine.

      You have to remember he's an UTG raiser at a full ring table so his range won't have many hands worse than yours.

      Ha ya sorry dunno how I mixed up the title.
      Ya I was pretty much folding any river bet. I had to take a stab at the pot on the turn as he could have easily had AK or even AQs

      Hello 0744379,

      Doubt that I would change much in your play. I might even bet it bigger on the turn but it's not wrong. We still have to protect from draws+overcards. Also bet it for the free showdown.

      Best Regards.
