What's the reason for raising and not calling? Plus, if I'm raising, it's all in.

Just waiting for that answer. Obv flatting is right. This guy tried to justify to me how I should raise there. He ended up floating me with Q8 and donkbet the turn and the river was a 7, which I did not fold. Was pissed about it but this guy was fking hilarious. Tried to tell me just because he won the Double Deuce that he knows all and that my play was absolutely terrible. I lold hard

Cram and kick yourself for playing this hand when priced-in villain turns up 87 for the str8 and you whiff the river.Isn't folding PF pretty standard for A9?
i mean it isnt a terrible open, but we have to be very careful with it.

lol, what does shoving here accomplish? if he has a boat or 87, good for him, we're going to get stacked anyway. By shoving we're eliminating all his bluffs and probably only getting called by better. Also a9hh is a fine opening hand from this position.edit: I guess he could donk here with a weaker 9, in which case he's calling that off if we shove, but bluffs make up a bigger part of his range than any 9 or a boat, so we should just let him do the betting for us.

Good points, thx, although I'll stick with a nittier opening range from this position (UTG2). I think you end up missing too many flops or getting too involved in potentially dangerous hands with A9 and the like, regardless of the "power" implied by opening at this position.

A call on the turn given the EP raise and our chip stack looks very strong so i really don't expect villain to bluff the river. I think villain could hero call us with worse(67,77,88...) if we shove the turn. if an 8 or 7 comes on the river we don't know where we are at (we could lose some value or get bluffed if he shoves).

Why would a villain all of the sudden donkbet a medium pocket pair like that on the turn?
he might think his medium pocket pair is good and is trying to control the size of the pot (he's betting ~ half the pot)+ after the board pairs it's less likely we have a 9.

Exactly, so it's in our best interest to let him think he's value betting here if he has a hand like that. If we raise he's not allowed to pot control anymore and will more than likely fold. Given that with the fact that there are more bluffs in his range than medium pocket pairs, it's in our best interest to allow to continue to bet on the river. You're advocating for trying to play for stacks in this spot, and that's not what we should be doing. We need to be getting the most value out of our hand possible, by raising we are losing value. Let him do the bidding for us. He's not going to put in another cent unless he has a 9 or a boat (which is very unlikely here) if we raise.

I don't think we are getting any more value on the river.I mean from villain's perspective, what does he beat once we call the turn?

i agree with the call line on the turn, no point in raising there but i don't really like the open pf UTG+1 and A9 with your stack size. i fold pf.

The table appears to be fairly deep, and if they're not playing back at him a lot then raising with a9s there is fine.
