      Hi farma,

      3betting OOP with 99, I'm not a huge fan of this play. Maybe in position if he does defend super wide I wouldn't mind it cos you can take many pot control and bluff induce lines.

      Here, sure I think you can get value from his range in general. But you just get lost on so many flops. I limit myself to TT+ for pocketpairs. In general people only 3bet 99 as part of their value range vs strong regs who 4bet bluff a lot so they can jam this hand.

      As played I think c/f. Your hand is too weak to call, and I don't really like cbetting this double broadway flop. we could hope to be up against smaller pocketpairs which check down so I see no point in turning it into a bluff.

      Villain is 44/31 37bb fish? We still don't wanna 3b get it in pf?

      Is flop still c/f in this case?

      Oh wait he's short? I guess that's fine then.

      I think c/f is fine still.
