or K9 for higher 2 pair that's why he shoves because if he have a set, higher 2 pair or even set of 7 at the turn. I think any player knows how to 3bet that.

but of course 99 is a possibility, if he have it so be it I'm willing to lose here.

next time you can also do this in hand replayer much easier for us to look.

you just have to remove the details you don't want to put just like in hand converter and you will not use other site here which I know they want to minimize.

In an SnG I think you have to just fold, gross as it is. Too many hands he can easily have that beat you. You can probably find a better spot later even though he has K9 here a lot, he has AA and 99 too. 97 is also possible. You still have a decent stack if you fold.

That's a real passive line for anything that beats you other than 99. I think the opp has K9 or A9, or AK... most likely K9 more often than they have a hand that beats you.

I'm making the call here and tipping my cap to them if they have 99.

I would put him on a suited 7-9 hand , possibly with a flush draw, or a pair of nines. To me these only hands that makes sense, he hit the boat on the river. That would explain his passive line, but he has also called some substantial bets.

In a 3.50 STT they aren't bluffing with air much, in my admittedly limited experience.

There is no real read on this villain yet. You've seen about 20 hands, at most. Haven't gotten any SD reads. But it does seem to show some tendencies of a LAGgy player. I really feel a good LAG would want to get more value from his ‘sets’. But at this level, are we really expecting to see a good LAG? Maybe he picked up on some of your tendencies. Have you been stationy? Doesn't look like it by your stack (even though it could have balanced out), but your not that type of player. With no real reads either way (he may not even 'read' players), we don’t know what to do. Some will do this with AIR, because they want to fold out Kx. Others will do this with a MONSTER. The AI bet can truly be a ‘polarized’ bet. That’s why it’s used; it disguises strong hands, and traps players in to calling their so-called BLUFF.

Weighing all the facts: we haven’t seen this play from him before; tourney just started; you’re in good shape (stack wise); you can outplay the field; there aren’t enough chips in the pot worth losing the tourney over…. Just let it go.

This was more or less why I called, and he did have 99. I was flabbergasted by his line, but it did make perfect sense.

Strangely enough, I ended up placing 2nd in this STT, and he placed 1st.
