Is my thinking wrong here? SnG
OK I was playing a Sit and Go blinds were maybe 100-200 I think. Maybe 5 or 6 players left. I had 1400 and was just 1 after the big blind.
I look down and see AK ok re-raise to 900.
The guy right after me has around 3000 chips and pushes all in.
I call because I have no choice. Its AK vs 99 and I win the hand. Then I said why would you call with just 99. He said he knew he had the higher odds
. Then I said I raised 900 and you didn't think I could have any pock pair above you. Even if I had 10 J... Sure you would start with the odds but if a Jack or 10 hit you would be in trouble. Then he said I was terrible.
For me one of my rules as a big stack is NEVER really call an all in if the value is too high unless its AA or possibly KK.
After the 900 raise he should have said "well pocket 9's are good. But why risk it. Even if I lose im at 1600 but the blinds are big and again the guy is representing a big hand." Instead he calls and 2 hands later is out.
If he had folded it would have cost him nothing and he could have kept on.
Anyways would any of you guys go an all in with 99 if the blinds were 100-200 and a guy pre flop raised 900? and you had around 3000 chips?
I just think his play is an unecessary risk.
