      38 hands 33/28/ 25 steal (saw him on another table calling down 3 streets with second pair).

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      Hero ($12.05)
      BB ($12.23)
      UTG ($2.55)
      UTG+1 ($21.81)
      CO ($12.07)
      BTN ($4.15)

      Dealt to Hero 9:diamond: 9:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.20, Hero raises to $0.85, fold, BTN calls $0.65

      FLOP ($1.80) 7:club: 8:diamond: 6:heart:

      Hero bets $1.30, BTN raises to $3.30 (AI), Hero calls $2

      TURN ($8.40) 7:club: 8:diamond: 6:heart: 6:club:

      RIVER ($8.40) 7:club: 8:diamond: 6:heart: 6:club: 2:spade:

      BTN shows K:heart: K:diamond:
      (Pre 81%, Flop 61.3%, Turn 77.3%)

      Hero shows 9:diamond: 9:heart:
      (Pre 19%, Flop 38.7%, Turn 22.7%)

      BTN wins $7.84

      Usually I just flat with 99 but against him I want to 3b and get it in preflop.

      On flop my plan is to bet big and shove T. When he shoves over me I don't like it so much since he might have some overpairs that he could slowplayed TT, JJ but wants to play it fast postflop. Some 8x combinations are possible but also PP 66-88. We don't beat much other that TPTK.

      Hi Yax,

      Preflop: looks fine but we are calling a shove as well.

      Postflop: I think we can also go for a ck/shove here but bet/call is fine as well.

      Him having a major slowplay is just a cooler, we would have lost our money anyway.

      How deep should BU be for us not to shove PRE? 60BB+?

      Depends on the player and positions. Being BTN vs Blinds I would say that even 50-60 BB is fine with an aggressive midstack.

      70+ would probably be our cutoff but it depends also on his 4-bet size.
