      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      BB: 18/9 55 hands

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9:heart: , 9:spade:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0,90, BU folds, Hero raises to $3,15, BB folds, CO calls $2,25.

      Against this SS there is no reason to play postflop so i decided to 3B.
      He just calls with $4 left...
      On this flop he can call me with any flushdraw, 7x and 6x and i'm ahead against his overcards.
      Should i just 3B to $7 pf? Would do it for sure if i would be BB.

      Flop: ($6,55) T:diamond: , 7:diamond: , 6:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $6,55, CO calls $4,06 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Turn: ($14,67) Q:diamond:
      River: ($14,67) A:spade: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $14,67

      I would prefer to 3$, since that way he can always call pf and fold on the flop, also you likely keep in his lower pp-s that he would get all-in postflop+ worse Ax hands that he might fold to 7$ raise
      Also BB might always wake up the hand, so you´re loosing 7$ if BB shoves.

      I´d shove on any flop, and it isn´t the worst one in the world, so flop play is standard

      best regards,
