The opponent is Loose/Aggressive. I thought he might have called with pocket 6's, 7's or 8's, maybe 5's.
I really thought i was in a bad position to play the pocket 9's with that flop of straight and flush draw.

How would you have played this hand differently?

That hefty raise on this board usually means one of two things: either he has a monster (straight, set, maybe 2-pair) and is protecting it against draws, or he has a monster draw or a pair+draw combo which is even money with you right now equity-wise. You are out of position, and there are very few cards on the turn that won't scare you. Good fold, wait for a better spot.

He raised into the field wich means he has the goods a good % of the time and you have crap equity against already made hands (2 pairs, higher PP like TT or a strange JJ, str8). If you got outplayed, don't sweat it, better occasions will arise.

QFT, but our involvement in the pot, at this moment, is pretty small. If villain is bad LAG, we'll just clobber him upside down the head with the nuts next time. Also, OP has poor seat/table selection letting LAG have position on him: please to have him seated to you right.

Given he's LAG, I'd put him on A/7s or A/xs. Given that, he's got the outs for sure so I'd have probably folded given the only alternative (imho) would be to simply call looking for your gutshot or set on the turn. IF you called and after the turn he didn't pull a flush or straight into your suspected A/7s or A/xs, you have a very tricky hand but nevertheless with options...check raise if you've hit. If not, either bluff if turn LOOKS favorable for you from his standpoint, or simply check and fold if he presses it too hard. One thing about this particular hand is that the $6.50 of his chips (with the smaller stack) are more valuable to him than your $6.50 in chips are to you.
