Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 9s 9d
UTG raises to 3 BB, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls 2.5 BB, fold

Flop : (7 BB, 2 players) Jc 4d 3c
Hero checks, UTG bets 2 BB, Hero raises to 10 BB, UTG calls 8 BB

Turn : (27 BB, 2 players) Jd
Hero bets 14 BB, fold

Hero wins 25.64 BB
Rake paid 1.36 BB

On the flop I decided to check/raise as the board is good for my range.
On the turn I barrel another time. I find the board to dangerous to check and on a bet either float or give up I rather barrel and take down the pot now or be called and check on the river and evaluate then prob giving up and any high card and any card that completes the front door flush.

Here is what I see in Pokersnowie:
To my surprise PokerSnowie gives a -0.22 EV for my bet on the flop and a +0.54 for calling on the flop. Maybe 99 is not the hand to do this with as it has value of its own but I dont like being OOP against an UTG raise with a marginal holding but prob better hand then the opponent? By the way Pokersnowie gives -004 EV for a smaller reraise.
Pokersnowie would either bet full pot - I disagree as I believe that about 1/2 pot denies enough equity for human villains hand and that human villain will fold all hands that does not have hit or is a good draw on my line or check I can see the merit of checking but I rather try to play it simple and take the pot down then giving my opponent a free card.

What do you guys think of the line I took?
