this is pretty close. i think id break if i didnt know what to do otr if he bets, and possibly break anyway as people at 2/4 probbaly dont snow very often there and may not pat too many 9's (not sure on this).

If he's doing silly stuff like patting Ts on the flop, then I think its a pretty clear freeze on 3rd. Against an unknown I though I think I usually break this, but freeze 96s or 97ww3.

+1 to breaking normally, especially since our draw is so good. With this read, we are obv never breaking good 9s against him in the future.

@All, pretend we were OOP instead. That would make you more likely to draw, right? Being IP allows us to freeze and prevent him from breaking, but being OOP makes me want to draw even more.

yes and no, because our implied odds are better IP so thats better for breaking but as you say patting OOP is sad because he can now break worse etc.

FWIF, if it was just a rough T hand, it may not be a snow so much as a guy who just wants to get pat ASAP. It's a small difference that can make you a few extra bets if you exploit it.

To me, snow implied he won't ever x/c. If he's just a rough hand he's trying to showdown, he can x/c the river a hand like this, so we can bet wider.
