no reads, 8 players left, all ~1250 chips. You and villian have exactly 1250 chips.

Hero in MP with A /images/graemlins/spade.gif J /images/graemlins/spade.gif
Folded to Hero, who bets 3BB (150). Folded to BB, who calls.

Flop (pot=325): 9 /images/graemlins/spade.gif T /images/graemlins/diamond.gif J /images/graemlins/diamond.gif
BB bets 500. Hero ??? /images/graemlins/confused.gif

BB bet almost 1/2 his stack, leaving him with 600 chips.
You have tptk with backdoor straight and flush draws.

Call, push, fold?

And WHY? /images/graemlins/confused.gif

i give it up.

#1 - i just don't need it that bad
#2 - i have NO idea what that bet is supposed to mean

of course pushing has to be the only other option. there's nothing waiting for you on the turn that's going to make this any easier.

[still thinking]......well, one would guess the bet is representing a hand that is also fearful of the draw: 2-pair or a set. both of which you are far behind. still folding.
