      PF - position call, nice

      Flop - by calling here you decide UTG2 is probably playing over air, because the odds are far too big for your flush and you have no implies unless he holds a redraw card.

      Turn - after calling flop you got a card which helps, though not nuts. I think it commits you to a call IP unless you are certain the villain is completely incapable of firing a second barrel here.

      If the villain goes aggressive on the river you can decide to fold but you are holding 14 outs to bust an overpair and are in front against overcards.

      I am folding the turn as well. You don't really get the odds to call here, and imo your are never ahead with the 9.

      Best regards,
