      Villain plays 13/11, 3bet 5,6%, AF 1.5 over 125 hands

      Since nl25 rush is a nitfest, I should probably fold pre, but somehow I thought he was capable of squeezing light here (bluff 4bet pre better then?)
      On the flop, it's just ugly. I guess folding is totally fine, but I get good odds to call to hit the straight, eventhough it's not the nuts.

      Cliffs: confused every step of the way, should I just fold pre to avoid these spots?

      I think fold pf is better if you don´t really 3-bet yourself pf for value 99
      On that board I´d raise and play for stacks, you can´t really then make pf call profitable if you´re going to fold or call this flop.

      You´re flipping likely against his 3-bet range:

      board: 8sTsJh
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      9s9h 49.87% 27,407 486
      TT-AA, AQ-AK 50.13% 27,547 486

      and if he really 3-bet something like AT I think he is b/f on that board

      But yeah, folding pf is better option, also you can´t 4-bet shove pf, since likely he isn´t bluffing too often or won´t fold his 3-bet value hands
