      Preflop: Hero is BB with 9, 9.
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.15, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.15, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.10.

      Flop: ($0.47) 8, 2, 4 (3 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 checks, MP3 bets $0.47, Hero folds, MP1 folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.47.


      Personally I'm fine with the hand. I just want to get second opinions. I played it this way because I'm OOP and you often see TT+ calling IP to try and trap. I could raise the flop although it's a strong bet, but then I would have to fold to a shove and if I get called I'm in the dark about my hand again. What do you guys think?

      If you called to setmine - it's fine and just fold it.
      But MP3 has 40BB, so his playing by his own rules and I may just ship it against him, because there are 8x/FD/gutshots and he's last to act so he may think he's cool now and pot belongs to him. You shouldn't be worried about MP1, because he didn't cbet, so basically gave up.
      Just my humble opinion, may be completely wrong.

      I´d shove on the flop
      It is very likely you have the best hand and MP3 has only 40bb.
      So you don´t risk too much if you´re wrong
