just call in early position and fold when someone raise and another one shove ( 2 raiser), normally I play like that. exception if i have strong feeling or know 99 is winning card of that day ( delusion, eh. but many time working well for me Smile Smile )

I think you call EP was not bad, looking for the set probably. I wouldn't call the allin tho with 99, but it depends alot of the information you have on the players. Do you use any hud to share info about them? Most of the times when 2 people go all in, one of them will have a better PP, was not the case but still, almost ITM i would wait for another day!

You could have reraised/shove EP but that's usually a bad move, like it shows here, since for sure the other 2 would call. They played that **** very agro tho imo.

ye. but they where always go all in before that hand and their kinda tight and passive player, calling stations, and i thank and search them about their win rate, poor win rate, but luckly have ace on board. pft! yeh i should have folded that hand, it really annoyed me on that hand, pft! should have min-raise on my part, calling is not a right descision i guess.

don't have any HUD. maybe you can share me some? Smile

well you can try holdem manager 2, it has a free tryout for 1 month i think, and its really nice specially for mtt. I think it's a must have for someone, atleast to try it and see if it helps your game, i think it does alot tbh because it makes you think in a more analitic way about yout opponents and not only on feeling. But did you get ITM at that one?

Only 2 hearts out that could hurt you and you could probably get a read by the way other players were betting after the river. I'm skeptical on this just because the Q and 10 of hearts are potentially in soemone's hand. I'm also not good at evaluating these type of posts.

i'm too bored to read the hand history in this format, but looking quickly at it it looks like someone raised (by going all in with relatively small stack), then someone went all in with the bigger stack? raise and reraise in front of you, and you sit with a decent stack with nearly itm? i would fold 100% of the time, no point in calling and risking more than half of your stack- better wait until you're safe itm and then attack

After that action preflop you need to fold, very bad call. The limp from EP isn't the worst, although you need to realise you're often just bleeding chips by doing this, because quite often you'll be raised and then SHOULD be folding.

Small-medium hands are awful hands to call allins with - they're great to shove allin when you're short and have some FE - but they're definitely -EV when you have no fold equity (such as when calling).

Hi. Your early position raise was a good move, but then you were done by the smallish stack going all in which prompted the big stack to come over the top. you really should have asked yourself two questions. Do i think i am winning here and even so, do i want to put my tourney life on the back of a pair of 9's. you should have folded! never mind? dont get upset but learm.

While you had the stack there, i thing you shouldnt have called.
If it was against one player you had more chances, but when you get raise, reraise,
the best think is to fold the 9's. At least thats what i would have done.

use your brains :

your bigstack before the hand, the call preflop is acceptable (fold was also acceptable)
A second player goes allin (he s lowstack and has less than 7 BB)
if the other s would have folded a call is acceptable with your pocket 9s
BUT another raises till more than 50% of your stack --> so you should fold and just loose the 700 chips of your call

If he had just called the lowstack I would also have folded.

Your pocket 9 s are only valueble when you hit a set, to win as highest pair is very unlikely versus 2 players.
Even if the lowstack his allin was just called I would have folded

Perfect example how to overplay 99's.
Limp-call is very bad also btw.
