      Known players:

      0,02/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 7:heart: , 7:diamond:
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 raises to $0,20, 4 folds, Hero calls $0,20, SB folds, BB calls $0,15.

      Flop: ($0,62) 9:spade: , T:spade: , 7:spade: (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG2 bets $0,30, Hero raises to $1,20, BB raises to $2,10, UTG2 folds, Hero calls $0,90.

      Turn: ($5,12) 2:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $3,42 (All-In), Hero calls $2,63 (All-In), BB gets uncalled bet back.

      River: ($10,38) Q:heart: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $10,38

      It is kind of obvious that he has either a flush, 99 or 9T - a made hand. I called in the hope that the board will pair and I would make my fullhouse (I had 10 outs on the turn)

      I raised flop to protect. Should I have folded after the reraise from BB? shove?

      How would you play this?

      Thank you :)

      Against unknowns we're not folding, you never know when they'll go nuts with worse hands, we have outs against flushes and set over set is rare. Just shove over the 3bet, calling won't help you in any way, if the board pairs it'll either scare flushes or allow T9 to beat you, and if a 4th spade comes you'll be behind stuff like AsTx that might do that too. Better to get the money in hoping they don't have TT-99 cause that's the only hands that have you almost dead.

      Hope it helps.
