Villain is a good player but has tight tendencies. Thoughts?

Tight tendencies would suggest to me he's got a tight range and that makes my 99 look not so good. If you were shorter stacked, I say go for it. As it is, I just fold and look for a spot where the big stack isn't looking for a fight.

That was my thought process at the time but then I thought, wait am I really going to fold this? That is when I pushed, I ended up winning this hand but I still did not think I made the right move, hence the post.
