      PokerStars - $0.02 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      UTG: $0.92
      MP: $1.62 Based on stack size and 18 hands fishy player but that's about it.
      CO: $0.63
      BTN: $0.67 Weak-Tight
      Hero (SB): $2.00
      BB: $2.29

      Hero posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has 9:club: 9:diamond:

      fold, MP calls $0.02, fold, BTN calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.10, fold, MP calls $0.08, BTN calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.32, 3 players) 5:heart: 3:diamond: 9:spade:
      Hero checks, MP checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($0.32, 3 players) A:diamond:
      Hero checks, MP checks, BTN bets $0.18, Hero ...

      Main question here is how to get max value here, OOP, very dry board and with top set?
      While playing that hand i thought that nobody will call me if i cbet there, thay just can't have anything. Now posting it hand i think it is a Cbet, because PP can call there, some broadways will call i think. Size of Cbet could be around half pot like 16-18c.

      About turn play, i don't know what will be the best play and what could be the plan for river.

      Hi vilistaja,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: As you mentioned your best play here would be to cbet small, around half pot. Both MP and BTN can still call with a wider range and there are still some draws that they can call with like A4/A2, 78, 67, etc.

      As played I would ck/raise enough to put BTN in and if MP has a draw or Ax he isn't folding.
