As for calling or folding, you certainly have to call here, which you did since you showed us the river card. You are getting over 2:1 odds, yes AK would make sense but his range is much more than that.

As for you reraise on the flop I am not sure what you are going to get from that. There are 5 to the flop and with J10 there chances are it hit someone and you wont take it down here.

SB catch a house on the river to beat you?

I had a couple of the similar hands last session. This one might still be agreeable as a call because of the pot size, but what about if the pot size is smaller and I am facing a all-in without the nut straight?

I know the answer myself. I am going to post a video of my play here as soon as I get time to record it. Any preference for video format?

BTW, this is only my 2nd time quoting myself :D

I usually muck 89 suited utg full ring, it's unlikely that your gonna see the flop for 1bb since the rest of the table still has yet to act, and even then your gonna be out of position the whole hand most of the time

Only K/9 and A/K have you here. Neither hand is justifies a minimum raise pre-flop, but of course, *no* hand does so I guess that doesn't say much.

The SB is making the right move to shove with any decent hand, like K/Q or T/Q. He's short stacked enough a standard bet is going to pot commit him, so he might as well get it all in early in the hopes of chasing off draws.

I'd shove to isolate.
