I'm going to guess 9-10 probably suited. I would think you would have raised with 99 or TT preflop.

Well...I want to say A9, prob suited sinced you were willing to put 2.00 on it pre-flop. I don't think you had a bluffing hand cause you wouldn't limp in UTG for a bluff pre-flop. You didn't have a strong starting hand for the same reason. So it has to be a medium good hand that you hit with after the flop.

But what do I know about how you play? lol

The way I see it, you rarely put in this many chips without a monster. I take it you're making a move though since you're mentioning that you wouldn't play 9-T, a made hand, this fast, so ya with the right reads you could very easily be making this play with like 88 or JQ.

I know this is a pretty bad guess, cuz i dont think you'd call a raise with this preflop, but its my favorite hand so Im gonna guess it. J9 suited clubs or spades.

Why not ? Can a poor TAG call here with an overpair ? Could you call here with AA ?

Why not ?

Because I have you pinned as a generally TAG player who won't make a play like this without the goods or a very good read on villain.

Can a poor TAG call here with an overpair ?

Of course; that's why I think you either have the goods or have a good read that he'll fold vs a bluff from you

Could you call here with AA ?

Hmm dunno; If you put this exact play on me, I'd most probably end up paying you off since I can't lay a hand down for the life of me :)

Then again I'd have played it different, probably reraising the flop to see if you really do have it or not, then fold to a reraise.

Let's see...

You limp then call a 3x raise (and you're playing on PS). I'm starting off thinking probably 22-99. I don't think you're limp/calling ATs or A9s UTG. You didn't limp/reraise, so AA/KK are out. I'm pretty sure you'd open raise QQ UTG. Not sure about JJ ot TT-- everyone has a different style with those and I don't know how you play so I'll have to leave those out for now.

Pot on the flop is ~$6.

Rainbow 99T flop and you c/r the villain's rather weak $2.50 bet. Pot is ~$21 after villain just calls. You have a pair here and at least want to test the villain but also bloat the pot if you've flopped the monster. Villain probably folds AK/AQ. If he calls, villain probably has a big PP, AA-QQ.

Turn is a 4 and brings 2 diamonds on board. You bet the pot leaving yourself $24 behind. Why? Someone mentioned QdJd and if so you'd have the monster draw but it's castrated with only one card to come; also why bet the pot when you're a 2:1 dog? You set yourself up for a cheap/free card with the flop c/r-- no reason to pot bet here since it's pretty clear the villain isn't going to fold and he likes his cards enough to go to SD. He'd probably check behind on the turn or at least bet the pot for you, so I see no reason to bet so big on the flop if you're drawing.

So why the big turn bet? Because you want it all in on the river. You clearly have at least a FH by the turn. So, 99, TT, or 44. Most people would (improperly) slowplay quads.

My conclusion?

You had 99.
