      Im not sure if i should have called or actually raise ott. Also not sure about the river call
      - When the vilain 3bets me on the flop i worried about a set, and thought that he may protecting his hand against a FD.
      - When i saw the 2nd 9 i hesitated, i knew it would be harder for him to have it the set, however i decided to pot control, instead of betting, just in case he actually made a FH or a 3of a kind.
      - i liked the river card, i would lose to a fullhouse or 3of a kind, but would beat a lot of worst hands, namely a J or even a A pair. Is it a standard call or a way ahead way behind situation?

      As played calling is no mistake OTR.

      But we're loosing some value here. He has most likely no 9 and for sure no set, since he is raising the flop and checking the turn.

      OTR were ahead of many ace high FD which hitting TP OTR. ALL draws busted as well (7c8c, KcQc, QcTc...). Worst case is a split against AJ (but this should have bet OTT as well).

      I would prefer a raise. Or do u guys think thats overplayed?

      Tempted to bet turn. He has sets in his range, 99 just got more unlikely, but he also has Q10, TP+flush draw, top pair lower kicker. OESD, Naked FD. The 9 should be a good card for us, he seems like a reasonable player and I don’t see too many 9’s check/raising here.

      As played, call is fine, i can see a small click back raise also and hope for a call from AKs, AQs or something like that with a spiked pair on the river.
