      Hi guys
      Im pretty new here, I've just started to play BSS FR, and I have got some questionable hands. The first one.

      MP2 is an unknown person.
      What is the best line here?

      MP1 ($0.70)
      MP2 ($2.58)
      CO ($2)
      Button ($2)
      SB ($2)
      Hero (BB) ($2)
      UTG ($1.88)
      UTG+1 ($2.15)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 4, 2
      3 folds, MP2 calls $0.02, 3 folds, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.05) A, 2, 2 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.05, Hero calls $0.05

      Turn: ($0.15) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.15, Hero raises $0.40, MP2 raises $0.50, Hero calls $0.25

      River: ($1.45) 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.28 (All-In), MP2 calls $1.28

      Total pot: $4.01

      Welcome then.

      As far the hand is concerned, just raise the flop and get as much money in as possible. People at microstakes love to play Ax hands and they have a hard time letting go of top pairs, which is how you actually make a lot of money. So when you're in a situation where you have a very good hand and it's likely villain has a top pair, just fastplay it. If the 2nd condition isn't met, like it's a dry 322 board or something where most people only have whiffed overcards, then it makes more sense to actually check/call and see if they can catch a pair or continue bluffing at it.

      Once you check/call the flop the rest of your line is fine, there is no other way to play it.

      Hope it helps.
