      i did not play it too aggressively, because my hand is not good for a big pot, on the turn i just my play my ace and give up the action when called

      important notes about villain: as indicated he liked to openraise from late positions and dropped around 250BB by calling very loose in dangerous spots, how he good to 700BB? i have nooo clue^^
      it was sooo good to have position on him, except of course in this hand

      Fold preflop. Play this guy in position if you want to make money off of him, not out of position with a shitty easily-dominated hand like A9o without initiative. Basically you have pretty much nothing going for you when go into this pot with A9o :tongue:

      In other words, A9o is a hand that has very bad reversed implied odds. Sometimes you hit your top pair and win a cbet or so, and then other times you'll be valuetowning yourself on 3 streets against a better kicker. So just throw it away and look forward to playing him in position instead ;)

      the result does not matter, that i won the hand?^^

      fongie you are so strict with me ;-) btw if you read this, are you interested in skype sessions watching each other playing? or do you take money for this as you are a judge here?

      i am not to sure if i agree with you here... that guy steals blinds with a wide range... of course A9 is almost never comfortable to play OOP, but a fold seems really weak to me
