      Final Pot: $20.25

      Villain unknown; pushing pre seems a bit ott. The minsteal is sometimes a monster but I don't think we can give unknown villain credit for this without reads. In which case std 88/AJ+ should apply here and the only issue for discussion is whether to push immediately. Is that a fair analysis?

      At least raise to $3.5 or $4 in order to prevent that you give away to good odds.

      It's hard for a Shortstacker to defend against a minraise, some shove, some just reraise to $3 or $3.5

      I would just stick it in with a shove, easy and effective

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      i usually play 99 the same way.maybe flat call the 4-bet?

      no point in the shove i think, yeah equity blah blah.. he 4-bet you very lightly, i think he has big hand and wants to get paid from the get go. either call and hope for a 9, or rags.. or fold it right there.

      i am so bad at giving advi...
