      Hi there!


      What about this 99 play? Would you play it a bit EP like I did?
      On the flop I decided to go for Cbet even to 2 players, because of the flop texture and that they were not fishes, so I gave em a bit folding credit.
      However when he calls me and floats the turn... I don´t know - should I double barell on the Q turn or just give up like I did?

      Hello AyuraoA,

      I do raise 99 in any position during my coachings

      Now we valuebet the Flop, so far so good. The Queen does not hit your opponent at all, he plays 6/4 which is supernitty. now his most likely range are PPs that you mostly have beat

      Therefore I just check/call the Turn & decide when I want to commit the rest of my stack in on the RIver & check/call again

      Best regards,
      Gerv
