      Not that I know anything about fixed limit, but at least river seems to be overplayed imo. Do you really see TPTK to be strong enough hand to look for betting into the cap (whatever term is used for this?) in river versus two villains?

      Considering I had the best hand after the turn and the odds of me winning were almost 90% at that point, I felt I had the hand locked up pretty tight. Only when he reraised me after the river did I consider him to have a legit hand. I thought maybe we'd split with AK. I could live with that.

      But really with an ace on the board and people betting like they were, that guy was crazy to continue with his pair of 9's.

      Look at the hand from his perspective. I'd fold those 9's every time, and 9 times out of ten that'd be the right move.
