      I raised thinking I create some fold equity. Maybe it just looked like a weird bluff. Anyway the board was paired and there were still 2 flush draws that would beat me in case a club came on the river.

      Hey Stevie8,

      Preflop call is borderline, although it's fine seeing as MP2 may be a fish and is deep stacked.

      Flop check is fine.

      Probably fine to just lead 9 turn. You represent a strong hand better this. You only really represent slowplays by check-raising. What you represent is not necessarily a huge issue however, but I would imagine you are less likely to have good fold equity vs MP2 when he bets turn since he can easily be a fish.
