      I had no idea if I should have shoved after his reraise or folded...
      Decided to take the safe route, maybe he had a better overpair.
      What should I have done here?

      Thanks in advance :)

      I think safe line is to c/c flop and then decide on the turn if you want to c/rai or c/f. Since player looks very aggressive I also don´t mind if you lead flop and then shove over his raise, since he can do that with draws, bluffs, hands like A9 for value. But if you don´t want to play that spot for stacks then c/c flop is better option

      Ugly spot, you played it ok, I don't think you want to stack off there ever, I think he always has a v strong hand. Min3b looks fishy, its kinda hard without reads vs unknown I think bet fold is ok there. If you were gonna stack off there you may aswell have 4b pre, which is generally -EV.

      C/c flop is also ok, because you get to setmine 1 more card, and you are likely to pay a similar price, the only problem here is that you know less about your opponents hand and when you check turn he likely fires again at which point i think you are folding like always, which sucks if he has AK or something.

      I don't think he turns up with A9 here ever, min 3b is like never A9 unless he is some crazy drunk spew fish.
