How could I have played this hand?

By: Shambhavi @ 15:33 (EST) / 1 / Comment ( 2 )

In 6 seated table(0.5/1). Everyone folded before button. Button raised to 3bb and SB re-raised to 8bb. I was holding 99 so I called the re-raise and even button.

Flop came 2 2 3r and pot was 24. SB check and I bet 10 dollars and button re-raised to 20 dollars. SB folded and I just called the re-raise.

Now pot was 64 and turn came K. I checked as my 9s were weak against turn card. My opponent called 48 dollars.

What I should do?
