      BB: 350.05 BB
      UTG: 85.05 BB
      Hero (MP): 100.2 BB
      CO: 115.05 BB
      BTN: 100 BB
      SB: 76.8 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

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

      fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, SB calls 2.5 BB, fold

      Flop: (7 BB, 2 players) 9:spade: Q:heart: 6:club:
      SB checks, Hero bets 3.5 BB, SB calls 3.5 BB

      Turn: (14 BB, 2 players) 5:club:
      SB checks, Hero bets 7 BB, SB calls 7 BB

      River: (28 BB, 2 players) 6:heart:
      SB checks, Hero checks

      Hero shows 9:heart: A:heart: (Two Pair, Nines and Sixes) (Pre 71%, Flop 84%, Turn 93%)
      SB shows 9:diamond: T:spade: (Two Pair, Nines and Sixes) (Pre 29%, Flop 16%, Turn 7%)
      Hero wins 26.6 BB

      17 hands, 35/6

      Is it ok cbet 1/2 on this board for thin value IP? I expect him to call with weaker 9x, 77, 88, 6x, 55, AJ, AT, JT, 78..

      Flop is not that thin imo vs someone that is turning out to have a huge VPIP/PFR gap therefore quite fishy. I'd say you can cbet 4bb for value easily, then the same on the turn because 5 gives him FDs and many pair + draw hands. River is close between check or value bet. Since he looks fishy I can definitely see a value bet but checking behind is what most people do.
