      Is it better to fold it ? Am I too aggresive here? But he made a 3BB raise into 14bb pot :) he probably wanted to represent A9 so he bet little, or he just did a pussy raise because of that ''who bets first in 9 9 7 pot usually wins'' theory (which is right most of the time)

      You pushed prematurely in first hand. I know it's pretty ugly, but it's a fold.

      In the second one you played correctly, but I say it wasn't enough. You're out of position and have three limpers. Therefore you should've raised like 1.75, but practically 2 and more, since you have no position postflop and don't really want to see flop. This way you're bloody commited postflop. If mp2 or bu calls you'r pf raise, you have to push the flop no matter what.

      I would've pushed pf instantly in the second hand.

      As played, good push on the flop. OESD always provides few good outs.

      I would play both handa the same way
      in the first one fold is fine and standard
      however, i don't think there are a lot of 7 or 9 in his coldcalling range
      the guy is an awful shortstacker, so i think 2 overs and bd flush might be enough, given the pot odds.
