      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.07) Hero has 9:diamond: 9:spade:

      UTG raises to $0.15, fold, fold, MP+1 calls $0.15, Hero calls $0.15, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.52, 3 players) 4:spade: 3:diamond: 5:spade:
      UTG checks, MP+1 bets $0.20, Hero calls $0.20, fold

      MP+1 shows 7:heart: 7:club: (Straight, Seven High) (Pre 19%, Flop 24%, Turn 9%)
      Hero mucks 9:diamond: 9:spade: (Three of a Kind, Nines) (Pre 81%, Flop 76%, Turn 91%)
      MP+1 wins $2.22

      So in this hand I had a feeling that I was ahead at the turn, when the river came I felt behind I called anyways I thought I'd learn from it. How should I have played the hand? I was considering going all in to protect myself from a draw. Was like bad luck or did I play bad? How should I have played this hand thanks.

      Hi prime333,

      I would take his small bet sizing as a sign of weakness because 99% of the players would bet big if they hand straight/set here to protect their hand on this drawy board.

      Given that I'd think about raising flop in your shoes.

      As played we should deff raise turn (like 1$) and hope he goes all in. I don't think we are beat here like ever.

      Best regards.
