      I know I played it wrong on flop - commited myself to the pot. But should I shove here on flop or should i check\fold?

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 9, 9.
      UTG1 calls $0.50, UTG2 calls $0.50, 4 folds, Hero raises to $3, 3 folds, UTG2 calls $2.50.

      Equillator showed I had 33% equity, so I guess this was a fold =\

      Hi mChavez,

      on the flop you have less than pot size left in your stack, so you have 2 options, push or c/f. Basic strategy tells you to push, but with 99 on TKA board it's quite marginal. I would look at villain's WTS and fold2c-bet to make my decision. If he has high WTS(and low fold2c-bet) then I would fold, because he's probably not capable of folding any pair, but if he has low WTS(and high fold2c-bet) then he can fold Tx and maybe Kx hands and that would be enough for me to push. Without stats, I would prefer to play c/f on this board and wait for a better spot.

      If you have any additional question feel free to click "Advise the judge to have another look" button.
