What would you do? #12

Villain is a 50/12 in around 12 hands. Therefore, not much history on him. Are you making the call here?

Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is UTG+2 with Ac Ts
2 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, MP1 calls $1.50, 4 folds, BB calls $1
I have been absolutely pounding on this weak passive table. I am stealing blinds at will, and with most of the players, if they are calling, they have a hand. However, I have limited history on the BB, other than he's playing 50% of his hands...

Flop: ($4.75) As 9c 3c (3 players)
BB bets $4.75, Hero calls $4.75, MP1 folds
He's leading a 2 club board... In limited history, since he has 50% of hands played, including raised pots, I'm suspicious about him. He's shown to be aggressive in the prior action, but has yet to

Turn: ($14.25) 9d (2 players)
BB bets $18.90 all in,
Is he leading the flop with 2nd pair when anyone knows an Ace is in everyone's range? He has seen me raise once in the 12 hands he's been involved at the table. To him, I'm showing 8/8... I have top pair with a weak kicker, but (limited history) 50 VPIP suggests he's playing weak aces, etc. What would you do?

Hero calls $18.90

River: ($52.05) 5c (2 players - 1 is all in)

Final Pot: $52.05
Hero shows Ac Ts (two pair, Aces and Nines)
BB shows 4s Ah (two pair, Aces and Nines)
Hero wins $49.45
(Rake: $2.60)

  1. AK-AJ are possible here, but villain is taking an awfully strange line with those hands. I doubt he's pushing so hard with any 9 or a boat. Which leaves a bunch of club draws and some worse A-x hands, including A-3, which just got counterfeited. I probably lean towards a call. Seems really bluffy. But it's close and a fold is probably not too big of a mistake.
