      Poker Stars, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BB: $50 (100 bb)
      MP: $66.78 (133.6 bb)
      Hero (CO): $50 (100 bb)
      BTN: $109.92 (219.8 bb)
      SB: $52.18 (104.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 4 A
      MP folds, Hero raises to $1.50, 2 folds, BB calls $1

      Flop: ($3.25) 8 6 9 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2.25, BB raises to $7.25, Hero raises to $17, BB raises to $48.50 and is all-in, Hero calls $31.50 and is all-in

      Turn: ($100.25) 4 (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($100.25) 6 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      $100.25 pot ($2.50 rake)
      Final Board: 8 6 9 4 6
      BB showed T T and won $97.75 ($47.75 net)
      Hero showed 4 A and lost (-$50 net)

      I did not flat flop as my hand will drop half in equity if I don't hit and I would probably have to fold vs a turn bet.

      Board: 8:club: 6:club: 9:spade:

      He is calling pretty tightly in the bb and does not check raise often. I'm inclined to believe that his check raise is set heavy and weakest hand he has there is an overpair.

      Against this range we have no fold equity and I think it's best to call the check raise to hit.

      However if he has wider on the bb like >25% and check raises wider like >15‰ I like a shove over his check raise because it forces him to fold some hands with equity that he check raised like 9Ts and AJ.

      Shoving here is only a small error and to default into shoving these situations are fine since sometimes they do fold overpair.
