      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: 103.5 BB (VPIP: 22.45, PFR: 19.06, 3Bet Preflop: 10.31, Hands: 791)
      CO: 118.34 BB (VPIP: 23.69, PFR: 18.31, 3Bet Preflop: 6.67, Hands: 3,150)
      Hero (BTN): 270.76 BB
      SB: 115.2 BB (VPIP: 20.00, PFR: 16.00, 3Bet Preflop: 10.53, Hands: 53)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 9:club: 9:diamond:

      fold, Hero raises to 2 BB, fold, BB raises to 8 BB, Hero calls 6 BB

      Flop: (16.5 BB, 2 players) 7:club: 7:diamond: 8:club:
      BB bets 10 BB, Hero calls 10 BB

      Turn: (36.5 BB, 2 players) 9:heart:
      BB checks, Hero bets 16 BB, BB calls 16 BB

      River: (68.5 BB, 2 players) Q:club:
      BB checks, Hero bets 236.76 BB, BB calls 69.5 BB

      BB shows 8:heart: A:diamond: (Two Pair, Eights and Sevens) (Pre 29%, Flop 19%, Turn 0%)
      Hero shows 9:club: 9:diamond: (Full House, Nines full of Sevens) (Pre 71%, Flop 81%, Turn 100%)
      Hero wins 203.5 BB

      Is it ok to bet a bit smaller than 1/2 pot to induce light calls or bluff raise? Then shove on river?

      If blank would be on turn like e.g 2, should I bet to protect the hand since he looks like giving up?

      Preflop: This guy seems aggro. Do you know his actual 3bet % in this spot? Look at BB resteal %, and 3bet vs BU open %.

      You mentioned previously that many people aren't folding to 4bets. If that's the case, this is a good spot to put in a thin value 4bet.

      Turn: bet a few bb larger on the Turn so river is an easier shove.
