PE's Razz Question #3

Played the razz tourney like crap last night. Over played the nut draw on 4th street and bricked away a huge chunk of my stack. After getting knocked out I played some cash games with a nice return overall. I had this hand come up and would like some comment on weather I played it right. I can justify my play but I’m not sure it was right.

I always raise with this kind of a hand. I don’t want big cards behind getting in cheap. Four to the flop.

I call because nobody has a made hand a the ones they have are beatable.

*** 5TH STREET ***
Dealt to pokerenthusiast [2c 6c 4h Ks] [9d]

Dealt to charlychance [Ac Ts] [Qc]

charlychance bets $1
pokerenthusiast raises to $2
philixer calls $2
charlychance calls $1

I raised here with the better draw. My 9 is two cards better than either players drawing hand. I raised it to make them pay for drawing. Is this the right move here?

*** 6TH STREET ***
Dealt to pokerenthusiast [2c 6c 4h Ks 9d] [Td]
Dealt to philixer [7d Th Tc] [Ah]
Dealt to charlychance [Ac Ts Qc] [5h]
charlychance bets $1
pokerenthusiast calls $1
philixer raises to $2
charlychance folds
pokerenthusiast calls $1

philixer is making my play by raising with a much better draw. The other player folds with what is the worst draw.

*** 7TH STREET ***
Dealt to pokerenthusiast [2c 6c 4h Ks 9d Td] [3s]
pokerenthusiast checks
philixer checks
*** SHOW DOWN ***
philixer shows [Jd 5d 7d Th Tc Ah 2h] T,7,5,2,A
pokerenthusiast shows [6c 3s 4h Ks 9d Td 2c] 9,6,4,3,2
pokerenthusiast wins the pot ($14.85) with 9,6,4,3,2

His draw misses and I take a pot. Did I play this right or is it more correct to check call?
