      BTN: $48.86 (VPIP: 45.16, PFR: 16.13, 3Bet Preflop: 7.14, Hands: 31)
      SB: $55.67 (VPIP: 17.14, PFR: 14.29, 3Bet Preflop: 7.69, Hands: 35)
      Hero (BB): $57.29

      CO: $24.00 (VPIP: 20.00, PFR: 20.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 15)

      SB posts SB $0.25, Hero posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.75) Hero has 9:diamond: 9:spade:

      UTG raises to $2.00, MP raises to $4.00, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $9.00, UTG calls $4.60 and is all-in, MP calls $5.00

      Flop: ($24.85, 3 players) 5:heart: 3:club: 4:heart:
      Hero bets $12.00, MP calls $12.00

      Turn: ($48.85, 3 players) 6:club:

      As you can see both looks fishy, what do you think best play pre, and post flop?

      I don't see any point in 4betting here. We just end up isolating ourselves vs stronger hands IMO.

      We should either call or fold. I think the 3bet is on the smaller side at 8bb, so I don't mind just flatting and playing IP here vs what seems to be a wide range (though sample is small).

      Or actually I just prefer making a nitty fold. I don't think the sample is large enough to justify calling here. Besides the 3b size is small because UTG is such a shortie at 12bb.

      Flop: Betting is fine but it's close. We are not a huge favourite vs his calling range.

      Turn: I think we definitely cant bet for value now. Check and bluff catch vs Ace highs and flush draws.
