I don´t like it.
Player mostly has here two pair+ or very strong draw if he decides to shove.
So instead of going broke on the flop I´d wait turn and shove then if it comes balnk.

Can 9 be considered as a blank? If you put villain on two pair, it is likely T9. It is a good card if he has flush draw.

So, let's considered that we just b/c on the flop. On the turn, there is \$11 in the pot and what shall we do if:

(i) MP2 checks; if we decide to bet approx. \$7,5, are we committed to potential c/r?,
(ii) MP2 bets (a) small (\$3), (b) approx. \$7,5, (c) \$10 or more.

When he has two pair then T9 is possible, but consider how drawy is board, then he could also hold here a lot of gutshots, oesd, flushdraws, sometimes medium pp-s. Against tight player I´m going to b/f flop, since he has here always set or T9.
But against others it is fine getting stacked here.
If he checks then I bet/call.
If he bets 3\$, then I´m raising to 10\$ and call shove.
If he bets 7\$ or more it is shove, since you´re pot committed to the pot.
