      UTG: $6.01 - VPIP: 26, PFR: 21, 3B: 0, AF: 4,0, Hands: 39
      CO: $10.47 - VPIP: 73, PFR: 55, 3B: 50, AF: 3,5, Hands: 11

      BB: $11.06 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 18, 3B: 12, AF: 3,2, Hands: 679

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with 6 :club: 6 :diamond:
      1 fold, CO raises to $0.20, Hero calls $0.20, SB calls $0.15, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.70) 9 :diamond: 9 :club: 5 :club: (3 players)
      SB checks, CO checks, Hero bets $0.40, SB calls $0.40, CO folds

      Turn: ($1.50) 8 :club: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($1.50) 4 :diamond: (2 players)
      SB bets $1.10, Hero folds

      So I bet the flop to protect my hand vs draws and I think it should very well be fine. However, I am not sure if my turn play is OK. Here's my thought process:

      I bet the flop since I very often have the best hand here and I have to protect vs overcards + FDs. Sounds reasonable.

      However, when the overcaller check/calls this flop I already have to be asking myself: what could his range be? And I think that he either has a pair or a FD most of the time. FDs completed + most pairs that would dare to check/call here beat me anyway so I actually don't really think that there are all that many worse hands that can call on the turn. + we don't probably even have fold equity vs his flop calling range and our backdoors are not that strong anyway.

      So, I think my play should actually be fine.
