This is a pretty close decision and the answer should be based on your read of your opponents. Since we've already pointed out that both players are not exactly "rocks" this makes for a call in this situation. The fact that you have position is also a key factor. When you call in position, both of your opponents will know that you have a pat hand and that it is likely a 9 or better. If Eli or Gus has a hand like 9-8-4-3-2, they'd be forced to break it, fearing that you must have that beat to call $100,000.

Called it: And Daniel, could you answer my question?

I voted call because while it's a very weak 9-high, you have position, and can see if the other player draws before you have the option, and if you do chose to draw, the 6,5,2 are all clean outs.And Daniel, why is it $1000-$2000 with $1000 ante? Is it because the smallest chips you have is $1000? I just feel that the No Limit and Pot-Limit games you play in the big game with a $100K cap and $1000-$2000 blinds is a very poor stucture as it is mainly a pre-flop/pre-draw game, and very limited post flop/draw. You only have 50 times the big blind in play, and I believe it limits what you can play.

yup yup yup....i like the note about either gus or eli being forced to break their 9's that could possibly beat you. That is really helpful on a lot of other hands where position is a determining factor.
If you see a kid in a casino who doesnt look 21, dont hate on him and have him carded just because he is the one raking in all your chips.
