      We shouldn't go broke light in limped pots, but I think we have no other choice here, there are a lot of draws on the board, and JJ/99 sets are unlikely, because most ppl openraise them preflop, and we block them anyway, so only 22 beats us, that is 3 combos only, and 1-1 combo JJ and 99, compared to many flush/straight draws.

      Dark awi got it spot on. For 100bb we can go broke. He could turn up with some slow played QQ KK AA as well.

      as played it appears that he has a pretty strong hand there, possibly a flush, maybe sets and overpairs but against this range we are not doing so well and do not have the odds to call and now have to fold.
