      Just posted these 2 for LimeAndCoconut.

      Here AA busted me, the AK 2nd hand AQ busted me :D .

      But im sure my play was ok, just put these in, not to fold AKs against unknown, you can run into AA, but AQ, KK,QQ, or nearly any pocket down to 88 even.

      against one player I would always push here. I'm not good enough yet to give you the exact %'s but I know from experiance that I've one more times than lost in this situation.

      Again from experiance the amount of players that would re raise here with pocket 9's upwards here is very high.

      Imo you played it right.

      I'm running bad also but your next upswing is just around the corner.

      you need to win in 33% of the time - 2:1 pot odds. Even if you are up against very tight and thinking player (who realizes that our range from early position is very tight) with a range KK+, AKs, AKo, you still have 40% of equity... But in reality range will be way wider. Therefore, unless you have reads that BB is ULTRA tight (PFR less then 1%) call is fine :)
