5-5 mandtory button straddle big decision...

Background, this is not a regular poker game, people play very loose and crazy. Villian was sitting on 30k profit and has been bleeding chips for about 2 hours, tilted as can be. I, on the other hand was stuck 12k and have just got unstuck and am now up 5k and I had just 3x'd pot on river and bluffed villain showing it, further tilting him. Action starts with the small blind because the button had $50(miss straddle) small blind folds and Im in big blind with 9d9s I raised to $150, one middle position loose, weak player calls 150 and the action is on villain who is in hijack, he makes it $550. we are 17-18k deep. I call, fold, 2 to a flop of Jd7d2d. I check he bets $800 I call. Turn is 9c villain bets 1200, hero does? I remind everyone this isn't a normal game a lot of this money is lent, the rake is huge but the players are bad, including me I'm not a good player but alot better than some of these guys. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated fellas.

I like a call here a lot on the turn. Your c/r's on the turn are your flushes and some of your naked A hands. You can check call with all your jacks, your sets, your pair plus gutters/flush draws, etc...

it's a 50 dollar button straddle
calling it 5/5 isn't telling the story
nobody would think a 20k pot in 25/50 was that unusual

for the op- i mean obviously if this is the kind of game where people are doing this **** with 72 then of course you should be turn raising

People are also borrowing in this game, although OP doesn't make clear if players are playing off house credit or borrowing from each other. If it's a house credit based game, which appears likely, then I'm really not surprised the stacks are so deep.

I used to play a ton of insane credit-based, no rake home games with a group of friends during college. These games often started as 1/1 games with people buying in for $20 or $40 at a time at the beginning of the night, but would escalate to 1/2/4 games with rebuys of 100-500 towards the end of the night and there could easily be 10k+ in play. Games would get absurdly large because (1) people rarely quit the game early (we usually broke it around 2/3 am), (2) credit was readily available, (3) big winners were expected to give big losers rebates. Although I doubt #3 applies to OP, #2 does, and #1 may as well, and obviously extending credit will entice people to stay.

OP, I hope whoever running the game has a great reputation and is willing to make full any stiffed payments. You should exercise reeeaaaaalllly good bankroll management too, since it is incredibly risky to freeroll yourself by dutifully paying your debts only to get stiffed on a big win later on.
