Sounds to me like even if you shoved the flop or even prflop hes calling some of them like playing bingo with low pockets, i would only shove 99 on the button into a nit but some of them think 99 is a made hand.

I'm not sure reraising/betting/betting with a monster counts as 'tricky' play Bill

But I suppose in the context of the skill league, anything less than a preflop overbet shove is pretty sophisticated...

Super bad suck out on the river. Ouchy..

I'd make a bigger pre-flop raise. You're nearly always ahead (only AA is beating you) and you can get a lot more value from worse hands that are crazy enough to call. Big hands are so much easier to play when you define your hand with a big bet. When one villain makes it 320, you should raise to about 1000, and then get it all in on non-ace flops if villain makes the mistake of calling pre. When you make minbets and minraises, you are much more likely to get sucked out on.
As played, villain is never folding 99 on that flop, and you should be jamming it to charge him the maximum for trying to hit a 2-outer.

Bracelet Winner
