      BU had VP$IP ~55%, PFR ~ 3%. Also don`t judge me b/c there are only 5 players, was 9 few seconds ago before that hand :?

      I know there was big leak at this hand, but i`d love to know what was the best play here.

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, A.
      MP3 calls $0.10, CO folds, BU calls $0.10, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.40, MP3 folds, BU calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($0.95) 3, 2, 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.60, BU raises to $2.44(All-In), Hero calls $1.14.

      Turn: ($5.13) 5 (2 players)

      River: ($5.13) 5 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $5.13.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of fives(K A).
      BU shows two pairs, nines and fives(A 9).

      BU wins with two pairs, nines and fives(A 9).

      The preflop raise should have been 6BB, due to the two limpers, which means you could have pushed on the flop as a c-bet.

      BU is just lucky to hit his 9, your range is way ahead of his.

      So why did you post this hand then ?(

      Anyways as said before pre should be bigger for value so $0.60 and then if you get 1 caller you can comfortably shove all-in postflop or bet/call
      As played I would bet/fold since your outs aint clean (A9/K9) and you dont get the odds in case your outs ARE clean
