      Final Pot: $1,50

      I feel I had a pretty strong hand here, but still I think with medium high overpair it was better to keep the pot small, so I'd like to ask how would correct postflop play in this situation look like?

      I personally prefer raising limpers with 99 in position and also you would really want the CO and BU fold so you can be the last active player for each betting round.

      As played, I dunno, probably make big raise on flop and see what happens :)

      hi
      i would raise 99 preflop from any position as played i call turn because your hand is likely to be still good + you have a 9 high flush draw . if he barrels river again is safe to fold unimproved
