      Were you often stealing vs this player, and had he played back before?

      If no or yes/no, easy fold.

      If yes/yes, .... you can fold or 4-bet. Calling is probably worst as you cannot be sure even if you hit your A that you have the nuts as you didnt force BB to be really honest about the str of his hand. If you 4-bet and get shoved at you can muck it.

      So it comes down to judgement on the player. I dont think an 8/9 is going to defend blinds very aggressively so im happy to fold, but thats without better info (say this is the 3rd time he is playing back at my steal in a row... im 4-betting for sure).

      Easy fold vs such nit. Nice hand, well played.

      Best regards,
