      Well imo there are two ways u can play this hand

      1)Your guess is, that BTN is trying to steal preflop. In that case, i would advice you to raise preflop

      2)U don´t want to raise the BTN because you are afraid u could isolate yourself against a better range. In that case your are calling on set-value, are u not?
      Meaning, no set no bet.

      On the flop u have to realize two things
      -U havent made your set ... duh
      -The Flop is within your opponent´s range and there are a lot of Draws possible

      That´s why you should play the hand like u did.
      But there is an alternative

      u might have something like 9 Outs (approx.) and good implieds. If u think so a call could be possible .. but that´s not how i would play the Turn

      Reraise preflop.

      As played: I call the river hoping to hit my FH. If s/o has a straight or flush, you have implieds.
