      Hero showed 9 9 and lost (-$4.35 net)
      BTN showed A J and won $8.64 ($4.29 net)

      villain seems a bit fishy since no rebuy. is this a bad turn barrel? i thought since i turned equity it might be okay and i might even have the best hand against a FD or something...

      Hi DrDunne,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Betting two streets here is a bit thin. Sure we can get called by some 8x/draws but then he also has other pairs like TT/JJ and plenty of Ax.

      IF we think he is fishy even check/folding turn wouldn't be a mistake (or can call one to let him bet floats but I wouldn't expect him to float that board that much anyway).
