      I think this squeeze was a bit too much here. You have an increased stack and opponents are not that loose, besides its an Early position raise.

      Have you got positional stats on UTG2 and a large sample? that could make some difference.

      It's a good idea to try estimating UTG's opening range and 3bet calling range and make some calculations so you can get a good feel for these situations ;)

      In order for a move like this to be profitable, he'd have to be raising like AT+ 66+ KQ which is pretty loose. More likely he is raising AQ+ TT+ so easy fold.

      I agree with dandycal because then you can make your squeezerange.
      I dislike assuming a standard sqz range since every scenario is unique

      All depends on how loose/aggressive UTG+2 plays.

      If you think 99 is ahead of his range, then push.

      I'd pretty much ignore the BU in this spot, unless that cold-call is a very odd play for him (like he usually 3-bet's super light, but suddenly slows down) then he might be slowplaying a monster.
