      Known players:

      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.96 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 9:heart: , 9:diamond:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0,40, 4 folds, BB calls $0,30.

      Flop: ($0,85) 7:heart: , 6:spade: , 4:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0,5, Hero calls $0,50.

      Turn: ($1,85) 2:heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $1,3, Hero ?

      Flop: Call or raise/fold?
      Turn: I really don't know what to do any more. He could be on 88, 55, 45, 56, but also on JJ, TT, 77, 66, 44, 67. I can't call here, and then fold to river bet, and I can't really believe that I can improve on river. If I raise pot will be to big to fold to a shove, and I'll know I'm beat. In that moment he was unknown (less then 20 hands). What would be correct play?

      Hello Oly0909,

      Flop: Raising doesn't really achieve much, you make just worse hands to fold and likely better one to continue, better let him continue his bluffs if he doing any. Likely if he has a bluff he will just Check turn.
      Turn: As you said that at this time he was unknown then I'd rather just fold our hand rather than put ourself into difficult spots. :)

      Best regards.
