      Hero (BB): $10.54 (105.4 bb)
      MP: $12.62 (126.2 bb)
      CO: $17.44 (174.4 bb)
      BTN: $10 (100 bb)
      SB: $10.75 (107.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 9 9
      MP folds, CO raises to $0.30, BTN calls $0.30, SB folds, Hero calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.95) J K 2 (3 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($0.95) 4 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.47, CO folds, BTN calls $0.47

      River: ($1.89) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      $1.89 pot ($0.09 rake)
      Final Board: J K 2 4 J
      Hero showed 9 9 and won $1.80 ($1.03 net)
      BTN showed 3 5 and lost (-$0.77 net)

      CO is a TAG reg. BU is abit fishy with 30 VPIP. I don't want to 3bet here because I think I will have very little fold equity from BU and I hate to play mid PPs OOP.

      Flop: My initial plan was to check/fold. Because the K and J hits CO's range very well and possibly much of BU's range. I felt that if they're betting here it's only with some sort of made hand. Perhaps QT might bet but it has alot of equity vs my 99.

      Turn: When they both check I expect both of them to miss the K, maybe J and they could have lots of low PPs so I bet for value. I was going to fold to any raise.

      River: After he calls and the J pairs I'm expecting BU to not bet any hand weaker than a K on the river and I would be happy to get a free showdown. If he bets super small like less than 1/4 pot I think I would call but any bigger I would just fold.

      Hi Tommy,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Our plan to ck/fold is a sound one and usually our best bet OOP to two guys.

      As played I would bet the turn larger to take the pot down. I really doubt that you have a lot of value (if any) from a third pair there.

      And the river is a check/fold unfortunately.
