      UTG ($59.55) 238bb
      UTG+1 ($38.09) 152bb
      CO ($37.09) 148bb
      BTN ($73.30) 293bb
      HERO (SB) ($74.24) 297bb
      BB ($54.10) 216bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.65, 6 players) HERO is SB 9:club: 9:diamond:
      UTG raises to $0.75, 1 fold, CO calls $0.75, 1 fold, HERO raises to $3.75, 1 fold, UTG raises to $7.75, CO folds, HERO calls $4

      Flop: 6:spade: 8:club: 7:diamond: ($16.80, 2 players)
      HERO checks, UTG bets $12.25, HERO calls $12.25

      Turn: 4:diamond: ($41.30, 2 players)
      HERO checks, UTG goes all-in $39.50, HERO calls $39.50

      UTG is big fish, 66/16,
      Had about 20 hands. He left me about 30$ with TPMK in 3b pot vs my overpair. Sitouted and returned with stack he have now, lost 2 small pots in last 3-4 hands.

      Given dynamic what do you think about my play? Plan was to fold only A turn, call others to let him bluff with random cards.

      UTG is loose overall (66%), but he is not raising that loose at all (16%)...
      I think we are too deep with the fish to play squeeze oop with 99.
      If he 4bets, it's an awful spot. If he calls, what will we play oop on most boards? So I'd prefer calling, and playing the hand postflop.

      All the problems we face in the hand comes from preflop raising by the way.

      Hello DimnjacarGogi,

      Preflop: You seem to be getting greedy with every hand, especially if you are deep you like to squeeze. :D Though being OOP it's very marginal to do and rather doesn't really make sense even to turn it into bluff. Rather just Call and keep weaker players in the pot.

      As played
      Postflop: Common, we think we have the nuts with our draw and play for the stacks, though your Call will be -EV. :P You ain't going to be ahead here.

      Best Regards.
