PokerStars Game #17183216628: Hold'em No Limit ($0.50/$1.00) - 2008/05/03 - 21:08:47 (ET)
Table 'Larink' 6-max Seat #6 is the button
Seat 1: pipi486 ($101.90 in chips)
Seat 2: plyer1983 ($277.05 in chips)
Seat 3: jefe78 ($148.40 in chips)
Seat 4: Dontherocket ($86.70 in chips)
Seat 5: skilgannon88 ($100 in chips)
Seat 6: BrandoAurora ($174.35 in chips)
pipi486: posts small blind $0.50
plyer1983: posts big blind $1
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to pipi486 [9c 9s]
jefe78: folds
Dontherocket: folds
skilgannon88: folds
BrandoAurora: folds
pipi486: raises $3 to $4
plyer1983: calls $3

villain is loose and very aggressive, been calling my PF raise a few times and using his position to put a lot of pressure on me.
Here with my 99 I'm quite comfortable against his wide hand range

*** FLOP *** [5d 4h 8h]
pipi486: bets $6

3/4 bet here trying to end the pot fast, sometimes I bet the whole pot for $8
I do not wish to see overcards nor a 3rd heart out of position
It would be harder to play if A,K,Q turns

plyer1983: calls $6

His call here is pretty wide, possible stuffs are

Flush draw with Ax Kx
2 Over cards maybe adding FD too
A8 K8 ( less likely ) would probably raised here since he's so aggressive
A6 K6 ( even less likely, since I raised preflop )
44,55,88 trying to trap me
overpair? not likely as would had RR me preflop
Inside-Straight draw? some possibilites

*** TURN *** [5d 4h 8h] [Jd]
Pot has $20 and I still have a hand, the Jack doesnt really scare me much
Here is the tough part, check or bet?? Lets evaluate

keeps pot small
villain has high tendency to big bet ~2/3 to take the pot away
hard to call villain's bet with another possible big riv bet
Could end the hand immediately
Makes him pay for his draw

Enlarges the pot
River would be very tough to play if he calls and a dangerous card falls(eg heart)

Weight both choices I sided towards betting
I would check often against passive opponents as I do not like to play big pot with marginal hands

pipi486: bets $15
plyer1983: calls $15

he calls again, I strongly feel he has either a Flush draw or is trapping me
but a higher probability of a flushdraw

*** RIVER *** [5d 4h 8h Jd] [Td]
pipi486: checks
2 over cards and the pot is so big already, I just wanna check it down to see his cards

plyer1983: bets $252.05 and is all-in
Time to catch the fish!!!

pipi486: calls $76.90 and is all-in
*** SHOW DOWN ***
plyer1983: shows [Kh 9h] (high card King)
pipi486: shows [9c 9s] (a pair of Nines)
pipi486 collected $200.80 from pot
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot $203.80 | Rake $3
Board [5d 4h 8h Jd Td]
Seat 1: pipi486 (small blind) showed [9c 9s] and won ($200.80) with a pair of Nines
Seat 2: plyer1983 (big blind) showed [Kh 9h] and lost with high card King
