      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9, 9.
      UTG2 calls $0.02, 3 folds, CO calls $0.02, BU folds, Hero calls $0.01, BB raises to $0.08, UTG2 raises to $0.14, CO calls $0.12, Hero calls $0.12, BB calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.56) 9, A, 8 (4 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, UTG2 raises to $3.01, CO calls $0.90(All-In), Hero calls $1.86, BB folds.

      Turn: ($6.33) Q (3 players)

      River: ($6.33) 2 (3 players)

      Final Pot: $6.33.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows three of a kind, nines(9 9).
      UTG2 shows three of a kind, queens(Q Q).
      CO shows a pair of aces(4 A).

      UTG2 wins with three of a kind, queens(Q Q).

      I called that preflop 3 bet for set value cause I had great implied and the size of the raise was 7 % from effective stacks.
      Postflop, after catching the set I was planning to check /raise and why not, playing all my stack.
      Since UTG played limp/ min raise preflop, on that flop I knew I was a big favourite.

      Hey Lukas,

      Nice hand and well played imo. Preflop is fine given the odds you get and 2 players in the pot (better implied odds).

      Postflop, no need to check/raise imo since although the board looks drawy, none of the draws are enough in their range, they mostly have Ax and pairs in a 3bet pot. :)
