When it happened I though of the big thread of yesterday. I still folded though :P We were ITM 4.40 180 men.

There is one difference though..Villain who open shoves seems regular. 13/11/2.9 250 hands I lost against him few hands later when I called AQs in big on his shove (AK) Thats beside the point though..the 2nd villain has 26/9/17.6 on 50 hands. Not to worried about him there.

How do we range first villain? Should we have called? Could we have called? And now Im of to bed

I think you did the absolute correct thing. an UTG push with over 10BB will be a cat 1 hand. 99 is behind all of them. The 2nd over-push confirms it. One may be a coin flip with you, but for sure (especially this late in a tourney when most of the bad players are out) you are behind someone with two in.... and therefore want to save your chips for a hand where you're ahead.
