      BB basically unknown, 39/30/23 hands 3b in BB 2/5
      So i already get the feeling this guys going to be very aggro.

      Do you think calling 99 IP is ok here vs the 3b?
      I think I can play well IP on some decent boards vs him.

      My question is about my turn play.
      Do you like betting? I understand worse is probably not calling, but i don't think I can check back & call a lot of rivers..
      Kx most likely bets turn so I think my hand is good a decent amount so i bet for free SD or possibly take down the pot OTT.

      I think he could show up with TT-QQ from time to time, but i think they most likely bet turn as well

      Hero (BTN): $29.47 (117.9 bb)
      SB: $10.43 (41.7 bb)
      BB: $46.74 (187 bb)
      UTG: $27.64 (110.6 bb)
      MP: $119.42 (477.7 bb)
      CO: $95.32 (381.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 9 9
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.50, SB folds, BB raises to $1.75, Hero calls $1.25

      Flop: ($3.60) 4 2 7 (2 players)
      BB bets $1.72, Hero calls $1.72

      Turn: ($7.04) K (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $3.50, BB calls $3.50

      River: ($14.04) Q (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks

      $14.04 pot ($0.63 rake)
      Final Board: 4 2 7 K Q
      Hero showed 9 9 and won $13.41 ($6.44 net)
      BB showed 7 A and lost (-$6.97 net)

      Hello dannywratten,

      Rather leave the pot alone on the turn whilst he has a lot of Kx hands in his range which turn into bluff-catcher like that. He isn't betting the river anyways without a hand.

      But calling whilst also being a bit deeper should still be fine whilst we also have position + vs blind.

      Best Regards.
