      Hey,

      Don't really like flop call at all. The problem is your playability ofc.. you can call if you know your opponent is the type to bet once very often and give up. However if he is on the tighter side he won't give up often because he has many high cards that hit the board. It's just a fold to his cbet.

      I do think there's room to discuss some preflop alternatives though. It's only 54 hands but if the guy is reasonably aware of position, 99 might be good enough to 3bet and stack off for his stack size. Calling should also show a profit but with shallower stacks your 99 gets quite a bit stronger vs a steal.
