As for 99-JJ why would a nit go crazy with them here and raise? Nits don't do that. Nits make the nuts, then raise.
Glad you brought it up, I forgot to mention my opinion of the hand. I think nits @ the micros over value TPTK and are VERY willing to stack off with it almost always. So 99-QQ (or 99-JJ if you want) should be raising this flop, especially on such a wet board where Hero can have a ton of draws. I'm not saying raising is the right play but I'm sure he is raising with those hands
He's gotta have FDs too, and T9s probably, 22-JJ make up only 4.5% of hands, do you think that's ALL he calls with in the blinds? I would 3-bet larger than min mostly because his mid PPs can shut down to a turn overcard, and be happy to get it in.
