      Cake Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $0.04 BB (6 handed) - Cake-Poker Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      MP ($4)
      CO ($2.39)
      Button ($2.97)
      Hero (SB) ($3.96)
      BB ($16.53)
      UTG ($8.16)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9, A
      UTG calls $0.04, 1 fold, CO calls $0.04, Button calls $0.04, Hero calls $0.02, BB bets $0.08, UTG calls $0.04, CO calls $0.04, Button calls $0.04, Hero calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.40) 9, J, 9 (5 players)
      Hero bets $0.24, 1 fold, UTG calls $0.24, 1 fold, Button raises to $0.48, Hero raises to $1.56, 1 fold, Button raises to $2.89 (All-In), Hero calls $0.85

      Turn: ($5.46) 2 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: ($5.46) 7 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Total pot: $5.46


      In the end I got the result that I wanted - going broke with trips + top kicker, but did I play it the correct way?

      I feel that if I was to call, UTG could also find a call to that minraise Button made (since UTG called my cbet, he would now get 6,67:1 pot odds).

      I'll spoil the end result - BU had the 4th 9, so that's why it was so easy for him to get stacked on that flop.
      My real question is: did my pattern chase away all potential hands that I dominate, but could have extracted value from on the next streets? (Jx, Overpairs, potential TQ/T8 draws?)



      Prefloap reasoning (irrelevant to what happens on the flop) - BB was my initial target here. I've played like 10 mins on this table and BB was sitting there sucking out on everyone with the weirdest fish style I've ever seen - He was aggressive, but only with bets, he would never raise. He could 3barrel 2/3 pot with bottom pair+ and he was capable of calling every gutshot+ draw. I had the intention to isolate him on any flop featuring an ace, and occasionally some 9's too

      getting all-in against BU is fine, since you only hold trips and someone could easily hold there oesd, hit his draw on the turn and take both of your and BU money, so I like 3-bet flop and get all-in against BU, rahter than slowplaying
