      Hero raises to $0.20, 6 folds, SB calls $0.18, BB raises to $0.80, Hero calls $0.60, SB calls $0.60.

      Flop: ($2.4) A, 9, Q (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $1.95, Hero calls $1.95, SB calls $1.95.

      Turn: ($8.25) 9 (3 players)
      SB bets $2.33, BB calls $2.33, Hero calls $2.32.

      River: ($15.23) 6 (3 players)


      Final Pot: $15.23.

      Preflop BB shows a lot of strength so i proceed cautiously.
      Im pretty sure im good on the flop and i wanted to inflate the pot by keeping SB in. Protection didnt seem so necessary and i wanted villain to be priced in and make mistakes w/ KK/Ax types of hands.
      On the turn its obviously a snapcall, if he has 99/AA so be it.

      Seems fine to me. 3bet pre seems strong, but that's decision you already made.
      BB commited himself by betting that flop and I don't see many dangerous drawing hands (OESD) in SBs range (may be JT considering his calling tendencies pre) and I don't think that you should be afraid of KJ/KT type of hands, so calling with intention to keep him in pot looks fine for me, because he is so passive and will call often with his strange Ax hands. Most likely he would call shove with them as well, but why not to try keep his marginal holdings in?
      Overall I like it and ofc there's no doubt about stacking off with your hand.
