      His preflop stats seems passive so should I fold turn.
      Moreover, should I check flop with mid pair on this situation?

      Flop: Do we really need to bet 99 here? I would check back, hope to get a low card on the Turn and then maybe we can sneak in a value bet here.

      Turn: I think we have a very easy fold. with JX i would call, i don't see him having too many QX, but still 99 seems a little too weak to call here. What air do you really expect him to show up with?
