      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with T:heart: , T:diamond:
      UTG1 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, 6 folds, BB raises to $0.25, Hero calls $0.17.

      Flop: ($0.51) 9:spade: , 9:diamond: , 5:diamond: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.34, Hero calls $0.34.

      Turn: ($1.19) 4:heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $1, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.19

      I hate these kind of hands against an unknown opp. I think I'm either way ahead against AK, AQ, AJ, 88, 77, 66. Or I'm crushed if he has a higher pocket pair or has 55, 44.

      I guess folding is the safeest option on the turn, is it OK to call the flop bet?

      Hello Jeffers16,

      Since he was unknown I would even consider it folding preflop since it will be pretty hard to continue for us postflop since we will never know if our PP is good enough. As played likely have to fold on turn, he has us beat and that's exactly the reason I'd fold it preflop, we wasted money vs unknown. Vs known players at least we could know what are his further actions and with what he does 3bet preflop.

      Best regards.
