Well, it's most likely not just a fd, an A or K on the turn or river is likely to make our hand good. Villain here is playing a half stack, and playing a half stack means shoving an overpair (TT-QQ) or 9x is actually a good play, because of stack to pot ratios - in other words, since it's likely he only has a pair, and likely that it's not AA or KK (he didn't re-raise preflop), we probably have 15 cards that make our hand the best at showdown. 15 outs makes Hero's hand statistically a favorite to win the hand after the river. If we have that statistical edge, and we're getting such a great price to call ($1.95 to win $9.85), this is a no brainer call, and definitely a hand to be aggressive with. This is what Jurn and D'Wilius were pointing out above, and Stu and I are definitely thinking the same.
Try thinking about the ranges of hands villain is likely to show up with and your equity against that range. Sure, villain will show up w a set here once in a while, so we'd only have 9 outs and one or two of them will be dirty, but that flop is actually pretty awesome for us, no way you're checking or folding to a raise (unless you hate money).
Oh yeah, whether this is a micro game or a nosebleed game has no impact on whether you should play this hand aggressively or not. If your stack to pot ratios are based on 50 bb's effective, this is a hand to play aggressively at $2nl and at $1Knl.
WurlyQ - great feedback, thanks, I'll chew on it.
