Thanks everyone for the thoughts. I've been playing at PS for some time, but am very new to real $. I know, micro is hardly "real $" -- but I take it seriously and feel like I'm learning a ton.
I know "tight" is more like 20%...but 29% is a LOT better than where I started.
As far as playing this junk hand, I felt like the 75 was a very small price to pay to see a flop and see if I got lucky. We're not talking about trying to get lucky against 6+ other players. So the flop comes and I figure I've got a monster hand.
Okay, now for the rest of the hand.
insolitude: raises 2785 to 4885 and is all-in
AdrianaL: calls 2650 and is all-in
*** TURN *** [9s 9h Jc] 6♠
*** RIVER *** [9s 9h Jc 6s] 4♥
*** SHOW DOWN ***
insolitude: shows [9d 3d] (three of a kind, Nines)
AdrianaL: shows [Jh 9c] (a full house, Nines full of Jacks)
AdrianaL collected 10400 from pot
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 10400 | Rake 0
Board [9s 9h Jc 6s 4h]
Seat 2: cotter666 folded before Flop (didn't bet)
Seat 3: AdrianaL (button) showed [Jh 9c] and won (10400) with a full house, Nines full of Jacks
Seat 5: insolitude (small blind) showed [9d 3d] and lost with three of a kind, Nines
Seat 8: Cker (big blind) folded on the Flop
Now I figured AdrianaL for Jx. Definitely not JJ, and almost certainly not J9. But in the end I had almost nothing invested in this pot and could have (should have) easily folded after the flop if for NO OTHER REASON than the fact that I was close to ITM.
To those of you who say I never should have called this hand in the first place, are you suggesting I should NEVER play this hand (except perhaps in short-stacked h2h)?
Finally, as to the issue of player profiling. I am just learning about this and really don't have any real read on any players. Partly because I multi-table to combat boredom. And I have been wondering how reliable player profiling is at this level anyway. These $1 SNG's often have so many players going all-in it's crazy.
Thanks again everyone.
