      I think Cbet is not idea, because I think BTN IP Cbet many times.
      I think x/r is okay for protection and I think x/r is protect better 3way than donkbet.

      Hey bosiati,

      In most cases you should fold 99 preflop. Cold-call is ok in this spot because BTN is very tight and CO looks like a fish.

      I'd probably donk bet the flop to isolate myself against CO. By c/r 99 you are basically turning your hand into a bluff vs BTN, and there is no guarantee the CO continues after you check-raise. 99 is really overplayed in this spot. I wouldn't be suprised if BTN folds AA.

      Your turn play is probably fine against the CO. Likely he re-raises flop with any premiums. I think in general you are over-valueing 99 throughout the entire hand though.
