      Could I make a call here. He was a blind poster after all... I am behind A7, 66, 88 and any Kx and ahead of every busted flush, low pocket pair, A6, A8... I think he has mostly air here because he seem like a really bad player sitting down with 200bb and posting a blind utg. So my conclusion is that he probably couldnt lay down a first hand wich was a low pp or a suited broadway.

      Thanks in advance!

      That's also what went through my mind, UTG2 could have had 8x all along and play it like that even on the overcard river, for fear of just checking to you. Even tho we block two of the 9's it's possible he shows up with some busted FDs/OESDs too. Of course he could also have us beat since the begining.

      Since we could be ahead, you have position on him and you're probably going to be playing a lot of pots with him, I think calling is slightly better than folding barring a bad vibe during the hand;

      Hope it helps.
