      Hero wins $6.94 ( won +$0.37 )
      BTN lost -$3.10
      CO lost -$0.90

      BTN - vp:39/pfr:25/af:6/wts:22/w$sd:62/h:140 - he was very loose PF but he wasn't a maniac, he was very decent. What is better there: c/R flop or c/c and donkbet when scary card comes or just to represent a set? or maybe c/F cuz i didnt hit the set? or maybe raise PF ? ^^ or something else... ? : )

      I think check/raising the flop to take it down and protect against flushdraws/overcards is a viable option there given how aggressive BTN is he'll probably stab with anything, and we don't mind getting it in against the midstacked CO with our overpair.

      Check/calling is also fine but i'd rather not just turn 99 into a bluff on the turn, especiall since you don't protect from much by only betting half pot. If you want to protect just raise the flop, when you check/call there against this aggressive guy you're probably better off playing your hand like a bluff-catcher and commit to calling at least two bets if the board doesn't get ugly.

      Although the second line will lead to more difficult decisions on later streets it's also viable.

      Hope it helps.
