      First, please don´t post the results of your hands, you want to get evaluated.

      He could donk here with any pair, when he puts you only on Overcards. It wouldn´t be a mistake to fold here. Problem with pushing is, that you have no fold equity. So your opponents wants you All-In. So he will hold a made hand. And even if he is not, you do not want to see any higher card to your 9 here.

      Without reads I would fold here. If he had done that more often in the past against me in similar situation I would have pushed.

      I agree to the fold. He called your preflop raise and lead on the flop. You just have second pair so it is an (easy) fold against most opponents.
