      BB: $4.61 (115.3 bb)
      UTG: $7.30 (182.5 bb)
      MP: $5.02 (125.5 bb)
      Hero (CO): $4.20 (105 bb)
      BTN: $4.27 (106.7 bb)
      SB: $1.45 (36.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 9 9
      UTG raises to $0.12, MP folds, Hero calls $0.12, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.30) 9 A T (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.15, Hero raises to $0.37, UTG folds

      Results: $0.60 pot ($0.04 rake)
      Final Board: 9 A T
      UTG mucked and lost (-$0.27 net)
      Hero mucked 9 9 and won $0.56 ($0.29 net)

      I don't have previous history on villain, but he seems to be a tight reg, not sure if passive or aggro.

      PF : As he is not opening often, this UTG open means he has some strong hand. From position, I could flat call with a mid pocket pair.

      FLOP : I think he had at least top pair now. He cbet weak, but it does not tell much what he has.

      Here, I think my play was good most of the time as I could 1) take the pot right now, or 2) make him call and chase top pair+ or flush/straight draw. So I raise 2.5x, hoping to drag him along. However, maybe I should have raised a little more like 3x to cost him for the draws. I could even just call when in deep stack with a known opponent, but the board is too wet, I think.

      Hello londonsystem,

      You have to raise the flop bigger, you want to protect! But of course rather raise the flop cause if he doesn't have a hand he wont be paying you much either.

      Best Regards.
