      Feels like im paying this dude off but I also invested soo much of my stack that I think I have pretty good odds against lower Ax hands. feels like this dude will have me beat 95% of the time. and rest is tilting spew. he seems tighty

      Hey tryhardnoob,

      Against a 12/9 guy I would just stick to the articles and bet/fold this turn. Even though you've invested a big part of your stack already, it's still better to fold when you have <10% equity against his range.

      Best regards,
