      no reads on villain.
      I raised the flop because my nines are certainly good now, but a lot of overcards can fall on the turn. I'm not sure if that's the correct play.
      On the turn I basicly have the nuts but the board is still dry so I cbet small. On the river I try to represent an ace or maybe busted flushdraw or so.

      Flop: I think raising here without reads is too thin. You might as well 3-bet this preflop if that's the case, cos 99 is good against most typical SB opening ranges, though I don't expect the average NL5 player to 4-bet light often enough to justify 3-betting this medium strength hand.

      Turn: I think your bet-size is way too small here. You want to be playing for stacks now that you turned the full house. Just pot the Turn so you can shove the River.
