[Live] Mostly loose players at the table who tend to limp in to hands every now and then.
Villain (UTG, 150BB - very loose and aggressive), MP and sb call $6. I look down at 99 (Button) (75BB) and call (I usually raise but I had been dealt this hand 3 times in quick succession so I just called this time). BB checks.
Pot - $30
Flop - TJQ rainbow
UTG bets $24, everyone folds, I call with my pair and up and down straight draw.
Pot - $78
Turn - K
Villain checks. I check. Should I have bet here? I somehow thought he had the A in his hand (because he is generally aggressive and thought he slowed down since he made the nuts) and decided not to.
River - Blank
Villain bets $48, action?

Well, I would check turn because then
1) if he has an ace I only lose one bet on the river
2) if he has not an ace but a pair, two pairs or smth, I think I can get only one bet from him anyway so I better do it on the river (because of p.1)
3) if he doesn't have something he can call with, I check to provoke him to bluff
And so I call the river.
By the way, how is it that you're on the SB and act the last?
