A Pocket Pair in First Position

published on 05/24/08 at 8:30 am

You are playing $25-$50 hold’em in your favorite local club. You are in first position and have been dealt 9-9. Being first to act, you have raised before the flop. A mixture of four loose and aggressive opponents have called your raise, but not the blinds, who have folded.

The flop is 9-5-2 rainbow, giving you trips (three nines) and the best hand at the moment. In most like situations, what is the proper course of action? Remember, its not 100% of the time as your tactics/strategy can vary.
