      restealing in low stake ring games is kind of pointless, especially if he's a shortstack. ULTRA bad move there.
      only do this type of move if you have good reads.

      even though u got only 83 hands from him and the stats are not so accurate, still they are very low..., 3% pfr + 25% steal from late position + he is short stacker... there is no point of resteal with 99, dont run into marginal spots with marginal hand

      Hello,

      Please don't post results.

      Preflop: Depending on the opponenet, if you think that he can raise very loose here then you can easily go broke, like you have seen him raising before with some random hand because of his stack but according to his stack it's safer to just fold the hand and not take any risks. Also two opponents are behind you, it could be that they have a hand also so I'd prefer to fold also but I don't think that it's a so big mistake to go broke here against such a shorty.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
