      i had only just sat down and played about 30 hands with this guy. ive seen him previously limp in (utg+1) with q8o and call conti bets with one over and no draws. VP:35 PR:5 i quickly labled him loose passive.
      He didnt donk bet the flop which would of told me he had to pair and called me cbet, when the second over came to my 99 i decided to see if i could get to showdown cheep.

      i felt that i was ahead all the way. did i play to passive or should of i kept on betting all streets?

      Hello funluke111,

      I would have played the same way, the turn is just horrible for us while the J also completes come of his range and has enough of Jx hands. Well played!

      Best Regards.
