      BB: over 41 hands, 12/5
      I find these situations quite often and especially with hands like these, late position 8's to Jacks, AJ/AQ/AK and i dont hit. Simply raising 7 bb and having a caller makes your cbet all in on the flop.
      Perhaps some good advice in these situations, cause they cost me quite a lot i noticed.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      it is ok the way you played it, if he catches or if he has the K then put it down to variance.

      this is a pretty good spot to shove here, since the K hits out range pretty nicely.

      You can also decide to shove preflop but the value you get form that move is LESS than if you would just raise to 6bb :)

      I'd push preflop since 99 is amazing headsup, but sucks in playability postflop, specially in 3 way pots which can happen as well. I would only consider not doind this if the limper is passive. I hate being in this position on the flop, since I have a hard time extracting value from worse hands and I always pay of better hands.

      shoving preflop against 1 limper with 2 players left to act is overplay imho.
      i would raise it 5-6bb as u do.
      with the BB calling i would put him most likely ahead of my range (with pfr5). after the BB check on the flop i would fire a 2$ conti bet as u wont have any more fold equity betting 3.5$ against a tight opponent like this. if he calls or raises the flop u are most likely beaten.
