Default nines in limp pot

3.30r on stars

I could have raised btf but I didn't want to play a big pot oop when I figured to get called. Maybe I still should have put in that raise...

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t1200 (9 handed) FTR converter on zerodivide.cx

MP1 (t32063)
MP2 (t44361)
MP3 (t38705)
CO (t2628)
Button (t7090)
SB (t27510)
Hero (t26625)
UTG (t17277)
UTG+1 (t6675)

Preflop: Hero is BB with 9[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 9[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img].
[color=#666666]4 folds</font>, MP3 calls t1200, [color=#666666]2 folds</font>, SB completes, Hero checks.

Flop: (t3600) 2[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], 8[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], 7[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] [color=#0000FF](3 players)</font>

I've found that getting almost any action on weak overpairs in a limped pot = losing big time.

most of the time you're crushed by two pair, a set, another higher overpair, and behind two suited overs or pair + flush draw.

I call this 100% of the time... The only reason why he'd overbet the pot here is if he does not want a call... he's gonna want a call if he has a hand that beats 99.

you could raise preflop but you gotta make it pretty damn solid. like 5k on top-- something that might induce the fold.
it's not fun, but i think the right play is to call the flop bet. this is much more likely to be a8 or a draw than a better pair.

what do you put opponent on? only A8?

personally I think 22, 87, 88, 77, TT, AKs all push here...

and if they don't they should because any flush cards kill the action from a weaker hand that mistakenly thinks its ahead.
