      You'd have to put your opponent on exactly 99 if you wanted to fold here, because he'd 3bet preflop with KK or QQ. It's therefore fine to go broke.

      Pushing on the turn is probably fine because he's pot committed anyway and he isn't folding KQ etc. Maybe just calling in case he wants to shove AK but would fold to your shove is slightly better, but it does allow the flush to draw if he's semi bluffing. Probably either play on the turn is no huge mistake.

      Hello ILuvBeachVB,

      Actually there are few other combos also what beat you, for example JT, what could easily play like that but we can't just Call since we will be anyways commited on river since we will get very good odds and even if he does have straight here, we still have outs for FH so going broke there ain't a mistake. He could still have there a lot of combo hands or even two pairs or what so ever with what he wants to go broke.

      Best regards.
