      Wondering what you thought about this. His stupid min bet then re-raise just put me off completely, and the fact that he's short stacked. Should I have played it differently?

      Also, no reads on villian

      Thanks dude

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      I guess there is not much to do if we face such a line. Often times it's a trap with a 9x. Therefore I guess as you raised then you could as well just fold it. Although sometimes it's even possible just to Call since there aren't that many draws and he will anyways have hard time Calling with a lot worse. But raising is definitely fine to take this min-bet as just Check.

      Best regards.
