      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 9:heart: , 9:spade:
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.02, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.10, 3 folds, UTG2 raises to $0.18, Hero folds, UTG2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.23

      - What does anyone make of this? Is this a wide range and we push all in or is this the signs of a monster?
      - Since I am in position could I call preflop and push flop if he checks?

      Just a few equitys to consider:
      - Against broadway/pairs we have 54% equity.
      - Against TT+, AK we only have 34% equity.

      I just erred on the edge of caution and folded but I wondered whether I was missing a good spot.

      Hi Phil,

      Stick to the Raise :: Remaining stack ratio which is $0.3/$0.1 = 3 which means you only can push AQ+,TT+

      Being this a limp/min3bet, I dont think you can push 99 here as the borderline is 2.5

      Best regards,
