        Man that is so utterly disgusting watching your hand get reduced to playing the board with 9 kicker due to a 1-outer on the river...

            I had a very similar bad beat the other day, and it was the first time in over 200,000 hands that I've flopped a full house, but lost to a random ace when the board made quads. This situation is very rare indeed. However, the winner of this pot would not have been the player with AJ (and probably not Q9 either) if you'd taken a standard line.
            Pre-flop, you have 99 in middle position. This hand is good enough to play in this position, and since it's good enough to play, it's good enough to raise. Limping in is a weak play that allows worse hands to get into the pot cheaply, and 99 does very badly in a multiway pot, as the flop will usually contain overcards that give someone a better pair. If you raise pre-flop, then Q9 probably doesn't see the flop, and if you make a continuation bet on the flop, AJ probably doesn't call.
            In effect, you slowplayed yourself to death. When you flop a monster like this, you should bet it for value, because worse hands and draws will call.
            As played, you limp-call pre-flop and check to the raiser. This is fine, given the pre-flop action (checking to the pre-flop raiser is standard), but when he raises it up to 20c, you should look at the size of the pot and your remaining stack and realise that calling is out of the question. You should be check-raising all in for maximum value. Your hand is close to the nuts (only 77 beats you), and villains will pay you off with worse. AJ is never calling if you re-raise the flop. Q9 might stack off, but you're thrashing that hand, as it needs running cards that will only come about 1 time in a thousand.
            I can't emphasise this often enough: Do not slowplay your big hands. If you slowplay and someone out-draws you, it's pretty much your own fault. If villains are drawing, don't let them do it cheaply/freely. Charge them the most they will pay. That is how you get value for your hands.
