Default 3-handed, chip leader, pushing Q9o on button

The previous hand I doubled up after pushing w/k9s in the sb, and getting called by bacon who had qjo, in the bb. This was somewhat puzzling to me, because bacon had been playing a pretty solid game to that point.

Other than the last hand, neither of the two villains had made any loose or fishy calls. This hand Iím on the button, with both villains covered the entire game. I decided to push, because picking up the blinds here would make my stack big enough to have the table covered. I figured bacon would be a little gun shy after the previous hand, and would need a big hand to call. I also thought the other villain would need a strong hand to call here based on his play to this point.

Whatís everyone think of this play?

Table Table 15242 (Real Money) -- Seat 1 is the button

Seems pretty standard to me.

I would likely do the same, especially with the way you describe your opponents.
However, I seemed to be getting called a lot lately with villan having something like K2 and beating my Q9. Then again, most of my pushes seemed to get beat lately [img]/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] so maybe you shouldn't listen to me. [img]/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
