      Open raiser Co player is 31/25, agr f 9 !!, fold to 3 bet 57%,wtsd 28%
      Btn is pasive player i think his range is most likely some lower ppts
      Pre flop-Should i sqz bigger (considering i am oop and we are little bit deep)??
      On flop i mainly continue with set but i think this board is good for me so i decided to cbet and Co calls.
      I Didnt have right plan for turn couse he might have wide range here -ppts, some 10x hands , over card floats mybe even JJ, my plan whas c/c turn and reevaluate river but i was not felling happy about it . when he c/ back turn i was prety sure i had a best hand and river was blank so i think c is better option couse he might spazz to try to get me off A high type off hand . HOw would you play this hand ?

      Preflop: I don't like the squeeze unless he 4bet bluffs a lot (or even 4bet/calls AJ/88/77). Basically you would need to have a really wide squeezing range in order to justify squeezing 99 for thin value.

      99 plays much better in single raised pots where u can choose to bloat the pot if you do hit a set or maybe pot control. By squeezing if he 4bets I suppose you are shoving? If he calls postflop playability isn't that great.

      Flop: Betting is certainly standard, and it's definitely a value bet. We think he doesn't have JJ+ and we are not sure how often he calls with ATs/KTs/QTs/JTs preflop. I doubt he has off-suit stuff. We think he could have 77/88 really often, as well as 66, AQ, AJ which are great candidates for floating paired Flops.

      Turn: I think we can't go for 3 streets so we should check at some point in time. Either the Turn or the River. We don't rep too many semi-bluffs on the Turn besides diamond draws. Checking seems reasonable.

      River: I think AQ and AJ should be betting the Turn really often. He almost never has TX or better so question is whether we should bet ourselves for value or just check to induce thin value bets and bluffs.

      I don't think he will bet Ace high himself if he chose to check back Turn. At the same time I think he is seldom folding 88 and 77. And he may check back those hands.

      So I think bet check bet is the best line here. Halfpot the River or maybe bet 10
