      Hi.

      Given your reads and his stack size, you can't go wrong with calling it off with 99. I think someone like this is shoving 22+, and 99 is a favourite vs a range of 22+ (8 is the middle card in the deck) and unpaired hands (pocket pairs are a slight equity favourite vs stuff like AK)

      Nice hand.

      Yea that is fine.

      Why don't u calculate your pot odds here? Then compare it with your equity vs a shoving range on poker strategy equilab. Play around with various ranges.

      Do u know how to count your pot odds? Amt to call / total pot size = 4.3/9.25

      If pot odds < pot equity, call. If not fold.

      it's under Poker Tools, pokerstrategy equilab can be downloaded at Pokerstrategy.com. You don't have to turn it on when you are playing poker, this is mostly for post-session analysis.

      If your computer cannot handle this software, you probably need a new computer :)
      Alternatively you could use ProPokerTools.com with its free equity calculator and it's web-based (can be used on your browser).
