      Here is the hand. Did I play it right?
      I know I reraised with 99 even though according to SHC I am not supposed to do it but the guy that raised before me seemed very loose.
      I watched him maybe 30 hands before this. I know that's not a sample but still it seemed enough to assume that he is either stealing the blinds or has some pretty weak hand.

      You can treat minraisers as limpers, so it's perfectly ok to 3bet here - especially if it's sb raising, since his minraise normally mean nothing but "I'm not an experienced player and I don't really know how to steal, but I'll try" :) . Nice hand, well played.
