      SB:

      BB:
      $4.75

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 9, 9.
      MP3 posts deadblind, UTG1 calls $0.25, UTG2 raises to $1, MP1 folds, Hero raises to $5(All-In)
      , 6 folds, UTG2 calls $4.00.

      Flop: ($10.85) Q, 8, 8 (2 players)


      Turn: ($10.85) T (2 players)


      River: ($10.85) 8 (2 players)


      Final Pot: $10.85.


      Villain's Stats: 82/43/20 (vpip/pfr/fold3bet)

      I only had about 40 hands on him but even if I were to discount his pfr range generously and account for variance I would still be way ahead. Would like some thoughts.

      Your push would be good on BU and blinds, now there are too many players after you, that could hold better hand than yours.

      Marginal if you ask me, I can see the logic behind your shove, but if you wanted to play this player only, I think maybe a call and shove on the flop would of been a better line.
      The players behind are not likely to be calling with better than 9's but they would be raising with better, (and from stats it looks like UTG2 is staying no matter what action transpires) so as long as they called or folded I would shove on the flop against fishy here.


      J,Q ?

      Thanks for the comments. A couple of things to point out. The players acting after me were tighties, with the exception of another mega fish whos stats read something like 76/0 after 40 hands.

      I think a call PF would have invited hands like AT, AJ, KQ even KJs to enter the pot, which is why I decided to push instead. My table image was solid so I was certain the push would eliminate all but premium holdings.

      btw, he had aces :s_frown:

      nice hand your edge against utg2 is so big you easily compensate the players behind you which will call very tight.
