      Was my fold on flop correct? His passive play PF and sudden agressivness on flop made me think he floped something strong. Yet im not sure and would like someones opinion on this.

      Hi,


      I'm also folding 99, truth is we're not really far ahead of much except 88 and he might not play it like that. Maybe if he's nuts and doing that with a naked 7x hands into 3 other players we're ahead, but he still has 20% equity. If he's doing that with a flushdraw somehow he likely has at least one overcard to go with it and we're ~flipping. If he slowplayed a bigger pair or hit a set we're ~dead. It's just not worth it.

      And don't forget to rebuy to 100bb.


      Hope it helps.
