re: Poker & 99 on rag flop; 25nl
Reminds me a bit of a hand I played earlier today (I'd been running over the table with a big stack, got coolered so no longer had a big stack, but playing pretty LAG in position, so my raises probably weren't getting that much respect) - which shows why calling can be better. Depends on your table image though.
