      First of all i want to recommend you to remove the results. Result dont matter in this board since we only judge/evaluate how you played.

      With nines on the Turn, I would just check to check/fold since there isn't much that you have beat if you shove
      This is in contrast with the rule of shoving middle pair but I think one has to think actively about what kind of worse hands will call your shove

      Best regards,

      Thanks Gerv. Thinking is definately something I need to incorporate into my game. At the moment I'm playing like an SSS machine, following the rules to the letter even if it feels wrong...
