      NH.

      I think of these situations like this: your "bad" call cost you $1.60. If villain had 77 instead of AQ then a bad fold would have cost you $7.20 by way of "opportunity lost". (I have assumed that either you or villain are drawing dead in these costs which is clearly not the case). Against a lot of villains your hand will be good often enough to make the call +EV.

      I think you should've gone all in on the flop, since 2/3 potsize bet would be more than half your remaining stack.

      Another possibility when you're playing these weaker hands, is to go all in pre-flop, when possible. In this case you could. I personally like this way of playing it.

      In this case for example, you'll c-bet around 1,50 - 1,75. That'll be more than half of your remaining stack, so you'll go all in on the flop no matter which cars come. So you might as well go all in pre-flop. 99 is the kind of hand that can be very hard to play post-flop, so you can save yourself the trouble and shove it pre-flop.

      1.7/3.05 = 56% of your stack as C-bet.
      Now if you push you dont have to worry about reraises :)

      you're right guys, didn't calculate 2/3 of the pot correctly, that's a flop shove allright

      if you bet like this, you must call
      on an A high board you should have folded to a raise
