      Villain is 18/15 on 100 hands, 6/8 Cbets.

      I decide to raise for protection against flush, straight draw en overcards, because the half pot bet looks (semi-)bluffy.

      PartyGaming - $0.10 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: 72.7 BB
      SB: 77.4 BB
      BB: 101 BB
      UTG: 148.5 BB
      MP: 104.5 BB
      Hero (CO): 107.1 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 9:heart: 9:spade:

      UTG raises to 4 BB, fold, Hero calls 4 BB, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: (9.5 BB, 2 players) 7:diamond: J:spade: T:spade:
      UTG bets 4.5 BB, Hero raises to 14 BB

      Hi MoneyStef,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Protection is a by-product of a different type of reason for raise. For example we raise for value and protect at the same time. Or we raise as a bluff and protect part of our equity in the pot.

      So in this case we raised as a bluff to try and take down the pot and perhaps a super thin value raise versus some draws. Given his bet size I don't mind your raise despite the lack of equity we have in the hand.
