There's not alot of info here...so to speculate. You lose if buddy is holding J9o/s, 96o/s or KK. Did they flop it or suck out on u? Thinking also this is a rainbow board...so no flushes on bord. At the river any 9 will win it and J9 is the nuts....if their holding two pair...it's ur day and ur set held up.

As stated any 9 wins the hand so if players holding it your through unless player thinks your beat with just a solo K,? in their hand. Alwso, not knowing any of the suits makes it hard to say if there's a possible flush.
So, what's up with the hand?

yep any 9 like people said.. i believe if he called it's because he had a hand. Hard to say at those levels.. but I don't think he had J9 because he raised to .3 not very probable, you need to think on the opponents range. He could have any mid high pocket pair , J9 not likely. Not much info like they said.. was it rainbow flop or what? he could be drawing .. people play like that on those levels with KK AA aswell .. even QQ. What he had anyways?

I wouldn't check raise the flop. Even without flush draws it's too dangerous to let opponents see free cards, especially as it's the kind of flop you don't bet out on if you don't have anything. Unless you know your opponent quite well their hand range to bet out here is too wide when it includes draws, pairs and made straights. So when you raise you don't really get a lot more information, you don't look any stronger. Your opponent could re-raise you with so many hands and if they threw in a big raise here you might have to fold.

So it's better to bet out on this flop. Top pair will usually call and if they raise you can call and keep the pot lower and hit a full house. It seems odd but you have more control over the pot by betting first in this situation. It actually looks stronger to bet-call than to raise imo. And you don't really want to commit chips in this risky hand.
