      You should fold on turn.

      +1 unless you had some kidn of read, he's loose calling station preflop, could easily have Ax, any 2 close suited cards, or an 8. I doubt hes betting with nothing here

      There is a flush draw and a straight draw on the flop. If you want to play on (which you probably do as there is only 1 overcard to your 99, altough it is the worst one), you should just push the flop (there is no reason to bet small, let him draw cheaply and then call a push).
      You bet less then 2/3 of the pot which seems really small on a board like this and even this bet is half of your stack already.
      (This way you can't make the mistake of folding a better hand on turn with such great odds or calling with 2 outs left because you 'can't fold' with these odds.)

      Hi Dandycall,

      I either push post-flop as suggest by Meiffert but only better hands will call you and results in high variance and marginal situations.

      So I just stick with c-bet 2/3 - Turn c/f if unimproved.

      Best regards,
