yes your over valueing your hand.
you say AJ>99??? nope 22>AJ...so 99>>>>>>>>>>>>>AJ
To better explain this, OP just gotta use Pokerstove and see for himself why 99>AJ.
OP, get yourself a Pokerstove, put in 99 against random hands and then see the equity. Then, put in AJ against random hands and see the equity. Now compare. You'll notice that 99 vs random hand = 72%, whereas AJ vs random hand = 63%
However, I disagree with 22>AJ. For 22, you're coin-flipping at best, dominated many ways. 22, u got 12 pocket pairs that dominates you, which is combination of 72. For AJ, only thing that dominates AJ is JJ+, which is 24 combination, and AQ, AK, which are 32 combinations, totaling 56. AJ>22 but of course, they're both horrible hands unless 22 hits a set on the flop of course.
