Am I supposed to be folding this on the river as played, and am I supposed to reraise turn and call off river?

i dont understand what hand you had. for example when i played today the blinds were high. i had a9 and went all in and hit nothing. amazingly i lost to someone that had pocket kings. does anyone know the % chance of me winning against kings nefore the river?

Congratulations you hit set, and the opponent hit top pair with top kicker, but anyways the opponent did a mistake on the river. I think it's hard to fold top pair with top kicker, but as you see in the board is strength, but it's hard to make a hero fold on the river, but is possible may if I was on the river I think I will press the fold button. Congratulations hero well played.

Great hero-call and giant pot :)

Two comments:

1. The best place to post specific hands in the future is the Tournament Hand Analysis sub-forum here.

2. Raise turn. The reason I suggest that is because your opponent is showing a lot of strength. He's now bet into the raiser on two straight betting rounds, and his sizing is full pot. He's saying he likes his hand a lot now; you can almost certainly beat his hand; so raise immediately for value and to prevent him from getting scared off at bad rivers.

On the second point, what normally happens on the 5s river is he checks his top pair hand, and you either check back or at most get a small bet called but no longer stack him. Strike at the turn instead!
