Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

stats VPIP/PFR/3bet
villain 4: 39/30/20
villain 6: 83/14/9.6

i pick up 99 in the CO and a loose player in MP limps, so i make an isolation raise. the BB comes over the top with a small 3bet, and the limper calls. based on his stats(and his small 3bet) i believe pocket 99 is ahead of his range and because it doesnt play well post flop in a multiway pot, i deciced to shove.

is my preflop line correct? or should i flat keeping both bad players in, hoping to hit a 9 and potentially win a big pot?
is my shove making him(villin 4) fold his weaker hands and continue with the strongest?i think he could call with AK,wich i dont mind, and probably fold TT,JJ

i couldnt even imagine the limper would call with K6o
and suck out!!

The problem is that villain's 3bet size is so small. It gives you a great price to call but not really a good price to shove against him. If your shove gets called by BB 99 will be pretty much crushed equitywise. I would prefer flatting in position against both here. Alternatively you could also consider a normal 4-bet (to like 2,20) which should accomplish the same goals i.e. isolating the weak shortstack guy and folding out BB.
