Why are you suspicious of the 5x play?

The answer is villain / read dependent with 7.5 bb I'm happy to get 99 if i can jam first, but not if someone is showing strength in front of me.

Had the villain made it 5x before where they tight or loose had you seen any premium hands from them.

I think a shove with 99 and 7.5 bb can be profitable, but this does mean shove in all cases.

ps the worst play of the hand is the limp fold by Andrei8152

I assume this is the 90man Turbo?

Given your stack size in a turbo I think you need to go. Almost regardless of what you think your opponent is raising 5x with.

The raise from the big stack obviously commits him vs most of the shorter stacks around the table. But given his stack size he should be fairly comfortable commiting with a wide range.

I think you're flipping often enough against overcards and with the limper and blinds adding an extra 500 chips to the pot I think your equity is fine. You can also find yourself dominating smaller pairs here as well. You just got unlucky

OK, in a 45man regular speed. You have a bit more of a leeway for a fold if you have a very strong read on how the big stack is playing.

If he's playing a normal big stack bullish sort of game then the push is still fine I think.

I'd be much happier open shoving 99 here than playing against an opp that open-raised to 5BB. With another player making that large of a raise, I'm mucking them and looking for a better hand to get my chips into.
