      Hello hingpoker,

      Preflop: With 99 you can easily even open up from UTG.

      As played
      Postflop: Why do you Check/Call the flop? Worst play you could pick mate. :( Bet the flop! or Either Check/Raise it! Don't like your play at all. But otherwise not much to do, we ain't planning to fold, not that many hands beat us anyways. While he could have 44/88 as well and maybe even just overplays 2pairs.

      Best Regards.
