      Hi MarsellusW,

      I'd reraise SB to $9 on the flop and call a shove.
      You're only losing to 66, 44 and 53. He might hold two pair, a higher PP like 99-77, a FD (unlikely but not impossible, maybe even TP but that's more unliely).
      And even if he has you, you're only in bad shape if he holds 66 or 44, if he has 53 you still got around 34% chance of completing your FH or quads.
      As played I'm calling the turn shove.
