      Hero shows three of a kind, nines(9c Js).

      BB wins with three of a kind, nines(Kh 9h).



      i thought that i may be able to find a call here. he was likely to be doing that with 9X and only 9A, 9K 9Q 93 98 had me beat, furthermore he was on the button. i beat slightly more than half his range.

      the re-raise was rather big though. would this mean that he was more likely holding on to better hands?

      Well, it depends on your opponent. Is he playing any 9x? 92, 93, 94, 95?
      Because if he's only playing stronger 9x (96s, 97, 98, T9, J9, Q9, K9 and A9) then you're behind a lot, EXCEPT that: he didn't bet the turn. So we can take A9 and 98 out of his range. So, there are:

      2 combos of 96s
      8 combos of 97
      8 combos of T9
      ________________
      18 combos you beat

      6 combos of J9 against which you split

      8 combos of Q9
      8 combos of K9
      ________________
      16 combos that beat you


      So it's an easy call =)


      Cheers!
