      Def. bet more on the turn. Though you don't really need to protect your hand (there is almost no hand with alot of outs against you in case you are still best) you want to build a big Pot.
      His check / minraise could mean alot there. 2pairs are possible (AQ, Q9, A6) sets (99, QQ and 66 is unlikely) and of course the Flush. But against that Range you got a very nice equity, so just get it in!

      Hi guys!

      I think atuerke is right. The turn bet was too small. Maybe I was scared he already had the flush but did not consider that I have tons of outs to redraw even if I'm behind (which I realized when he minraised me). Sometimes my thoughts are messed up during a hand :D
      So next time I will make a larger bet. I really have to build a pot there.

      Good luck at the tables!

      A thought I had, would it have played much differently if say it wouldve been a set of queens or perhaps even the nines? Since you could be up against a higher set? Mainly thinking of the nines since AA usually wouldve bet preflop?

      I think even then I have to make a larger bet on the turn to protect my hand. If he minraises me I have to call because of my full house outs.

      Good luck at the tables!
