      I think this is an interesting spot and I think I played it well, but I want a second opinion (even more are welcome)

      The raiser was about 35/25 over 40 hands, and the caller is a 86/10 fish over 40 hands.

      I think that here is fine to sqz because I expect a lot of fold from UTG and then I want to isolate vs the fish and even if they all fold I win the dead money which is nice.

      Postflop is fine, I think.

      Preflop I'd prefer calling, 99 dont play bad IP at all, even mw. In case we squeeze, and one or both opponents call, we could get a lot of boards, we dont know where we stand, and the pot will be already bloated up.
      Your plan was squeeze/fold preflop? I think it's too good a hand for that.
      As played, why dont you try to take the pot down on the flop? Not many good turncards :) , plus the fish could even call you with worse.

      Hello kymupa,

      Preflop: Our hand is pretty decent to Call and play postflop, squeezing might be questionable cause we can't be sure if we can even do it for value + our hand is vulnerable.

      As played
      Postflop: Kinda raised for value preflop then should also Bet the flop for value. :)

      Best Regards.
