      IPoker, $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BB: $2.03 (40.6 bb)
      UTG: $10.55 (211 bb)
      MP: $5.05 (101 bb)
      Hero (CO): $10.07 (201.4 bb)
      BTN: $5 (100 bb)
      SB: $2.75 (55 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 9 9
      UTG raises to $0.20, MP folds, Hero calls $0.20, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.47) 8 6 6 (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.47, Hero raises to $1.88, UTG folds

      I considered 3Betting pre, but I had been 3Betting a lot, so for no other reason than that, I decided to call

      On the flop I raised to get him to fold his AT+ hands, -- I don't want him drawing to a better pair.

      I realize he is never folding TT+, but ....

      So how best to play this?
      I'm not used to playing against big stacks -- usually the opponents have 120 BB max

      Just flatting preflop is fine. We don't really want to 3bet this against unknown.

      On the flop I would just fold here. He pots it, there are plenty of turns that we don't like and by raising it so big I'm not sure if we have enough FE at all, so just fold this.
