Weird spot with Nines

£1-2 with £5 straddle

Guy with £400 opens to £10 EP(not sure if he is aware that the straddle is on)
Called by guy with £400
Winning LAG(£665) flats the button
I call Nines from BB
Straddler(winning solid reg who has everyone covered) squeeze to £65 and the cold callers flats.
4 way to the flop.

I got 9h9d on £271 Ts 8s 7s with £490 left

Checked around to the button who jams for £600.
It's on me and I have a rake free pass.
I need 39,16% equity to continue.

Re: Weird spot with Nines

Seems like a marginal spot for 250 bbs, so I'd fold.

I'd likely re-raise pre, £70.

3b pre
Fold to 3b pre, think calling even closing the action is marginal anyway
AP fold flop, not sure you're ahead of btn range and 2 still left to act

Fold

Pre seems like a shove or fold spot once straddle raises

Squeeze pre there is a lot of dead money to collect

straddler is repping an overpair or something with the As easy fold his bluffs even have decent equity vs you

Re: Weird spot with Nines

3b pre is pretty marginal and i think flatting is ok, i'd rather squeeze IP. we are probably getting called here always and playing 99 in a low SPR OOP vs 1-3 players is pretty ****ty.

2nd time pre jam or fold, mostly folding.

Re: Weird spot with Nines

Don't squeeze pre. Your only getting odds against Ac7x and Ac8x and your only flipping against those so clear fold. So many hands have you in bad shape (flushes, JJ if he has that, AcTx, sets)
Like imagine he does this with 45cc it's an EV disaster

Re: Weird spot with Nines

Personally I prefer flatting the initial raise and folding to the squeeze.

I could maybe get behind shoving over the squeeze if the squeezer is loose but you're likely to get it in frequently. The squeezer will mostly know what that you have a mid pocket pair so will opt to gamble with his unpaired and is obviously in good shape with his pairs that squeeze. The only time he'll fold preflop is when you have him crushed anyway.

I think squeezing here yourself OOP is a bit meh.
