      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 9, 9.
      CO calls $0.05, Hero calls $0.05, SB folds, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.17) 2, 6, 5 (3 players)
      BB bets $0.17, CO folds, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.17.

      HEM info:
      BB VP$IP:20/PFR:11/AF:3/bet OOP:0/after 54 hands

      What would be optimum play: raise/fold to reraise or fold? call doesn't look good alternative or i'm wrong.

      Hello valancius,

      Nah, I guess folding is a lot safer there. Nice hand! BBs line sometimes could include any kind of 6x type of hands which indicates that we could even consider just to Call and reevaluate further streets but raising doesn't make really sense, we just isolating against better hands.

      Best regards.
