If you're already ITM, then you want to start accumulating chips for a final table run and to do that, you want to get your chips into a hand that you know you're ahead in.

9 10 off is not going to be ahead very often here. Against an opp playing the top 33% of hands, you're going to lose 2 out of every 3 hands with 9 10 off.

If it's me, I'm mucking and looking for a much better situation. You've got 20BB, which is plenty of chips to find a playable hand.

On the flop, you've got 8 outs at best (16% equity) and have to put 58% of the pot into it. Your equity is not higher than the % of chips you need to put into the pot, so you need to muck.

again Mr.JWK24 SIR you always have the best answer. pretty much understood. if my resteal failed need to fold my OE. give up the pot and next hand please

ONE TIME BIG TIME

Preflop is not a bad resteal spot, but if you're going to 3-bet it's gotta be all in preflop so you need to be pretty conviced of your read. 20 BBs is a good size for fold equity. Flop is an easy fold as you only have an open-ender against most hands and are not getting the right price at all.

You can also flat call preflop as a float to see what he does and take the pot away later in the hand. But you need to be very good postflop.

And you can fold preflop, which is probably your best option.
