      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:

      BU:
      $25.97
      SB:
      $34.65
      BB:

      UTG1:
      $63.10
      UTG2 (Hero):

      MP1:
      $24.65
      MP2:
      $26.15
      MP3:
      $17.78


      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with A, A.
      UTG1 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, 6 folds, BB calls $0.50.

      Flop: ($1.6) 9, J, A (2 players)
      BB bets $0.75, Hero raises to $2.25, BB calls $1.50.

      Turn: ($6.1) 2 (2 players)
      BB bets $1.25, Hero raises to $5.04, BB raises to $21.22, Hero raises to $22.00, BB calls $0.78.

      River: ($50.1) 9 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $50.1.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a full-house, aces full of nines(A A).
      BB shows a flush, ace high(6 3).

      Hero wins with a full-house, aces full of nines(A A).

      I know u guys r gonna say 'if he had beat u, it would of been a standard cooler" but his line looks so much like a flush, i think maybe i could get away from it. Then again against a flush i still have 18% equity.

      Well if u do suspect hi hit, he is giving u great odds(18% and u have more than 20% eq) to just call turn and reevaluate the river.

      Hey!

      I like a bigger raise on the flop. He bet so small that I would raise it bigger than 3x. Probably something a bit closer to pot, like $3,25 - $3,5.

      On the turn, I'd raise it, but I'd make it a bit bigger again, like $8 - $9.

      I wouldn't fold to a push though. You need 30% equity to call and, even though you don't have that, I don't think he'll always show up with a flush. So, I'd go for the call.
      Even if this call is a mistake, it's not a big mistake, because you still have very good equity. However, if he shows up with AJ, A9, JJ, 99, J9, A2, A :club: T :diamond: , it'd be a HUGE mistake to fold.

      So, I like your play (except that I'd raise bigger)

      nh!

      Cheers!

      99 and AA is basically the same
      expect with 99 you can also have there flushdraw with set that would increase your equity against lower flushes
      So I think you can´t also fold there 99
