      All of us usually have different opinions on these spots, some are always calling, others are mostly folding and looking it up once in a while. Basically boils down to how much variance you can take imo, as the question is exactly do you want to bet 100bb on whether that guy is really nuts or not.

      Personally i don't think it's worth the variance unless i've seen him do that with crap before, especially with only the 2nd overpair to the board. With a bigger overpair like QQ i'm calling tho.

      Hope it helps.

      AA, KK, QQ, JJ, 88, 77, 33 all have you crushed...

      Is he gonna do this with 66-44? Doubtfull... you're only beating 99 here and you're flipping against A K. Unless he's completely nuts and does this with A8 for example. But you need a read for that...

      I agree with tamairlarace, it's just not worth the variance.
