      I thought 99 TT( which generally ahead hand) was over and other possibility was ton of draws..

      Should I shove against this opponent? what was his range?

      I would usually not fold here.. I'd say his range can be flushdraws, some straight draws as well, gutters that raise/fold and basically never QQ+ imo. It's close but given some folding equity when you shove, I think it's the better play.

      Alternative on this flop I take because of backdoor draws + showdown value is to check/call but that's a non-standard line when I know player doesn't pay off vs a cbet but is likely to bet too thin when I check.
