Hello
There where 57 entrants, my position 17-th out of 19. target was at least 14-15. I just thought that after his raise I don't have fold equity and his hand range is ATs+,AJo+,88+ at least. My rank is 99 now and don't want to get penalty. I am even not sure to play it or not in this month.
Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Hi Shichi-77!

With a marginal made hand (99), I get an abnormally large raise in front of me. With this being a league game, while 99 is a good enough hand to shove with when I'm first in, I don't want to be calling abnormally large bets with it because the best case scenario will be a race.

I'd muck here and look for a better situation. Either one where I'm the first into the pot or when I'm in position.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

P.S. If this were a standard cash tourney, I'm shoving here all day long.
