      Hey, MP 14/12/1.5/7.7/38/109
      UTG 13/6/16hands

      Best line for value?

      I could prob c/r flop, since he's cbetting into two villains. But I have no bluffs when I raise given the positions & the short stack to act, so I think he folds almost all value hands he would bet the turn with.

      Chose to raise the turn because I don't think there's too many rivers that he will value bet worse with. My line still looks super strong though so maybe calling again is best & hoping he has some QJ or overpair that valuebets river?

      BTN: $57.89 (115.8 bb)
      SB: $30.05 (60.1 bb)
      Hero (BB): $50 (100 bb)
      UTG: $31.01 (62 bb)
      MP: $124.14 (248.3 bb)
      CO: $14.96 (29.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 9 9
      UTG calls $0.50, MP raises to $2, 3 folds, Hero calls $1.50, UTG calls $1.50

      Flop: ($6.25) J 4 9 (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks, MP bets $4, Hero calls $4, UTG folds

      Turn: ($14.25) Q (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP bets $8, Hero raises to $22, MP folds

      $30.25 pot ($1.36 rake)
      Final Board: J 4 9 Q
      Hero mucked 9 9 and won $28.89 ($14.89 net)
      MP mucked and lost (-$14 net)

      i don't think you can slowplay past the Turn. Either raise the Flop or the Turn. You can definitely raise the Flop with some KQ type of hand sometimes. You can't really have any air on the Turn though but at the same time I don't see how you can check here when this is likely to be the best time to go for value against TX or some KQ combos.

      Which is the better line? The one which allows you to rep more air I guess (Flop). Vs someone who barrels a lot (this guy doesn't seem to be one since he's tight), then leaving the c/r for the Turn would be better, and you should do it with some air as well.
