      PartyGaming - $0.04 NL - Holdem - 8 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3


      CO: $3.74
      BTN: $13.15
      Hero (SB): $4.02
      BB: $2.39 - 11/0/2 (10 hands)
      UTG: $1.75
      UTG+1: $1.88
      MP: $4.33

      Hero posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.04

      Pre Flop: ($0.06) Hero has 9:spade: A:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, MP+1 calls $0.04, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.02, BB checks

      Flop: ($0.12, 3 players) Q:heart: 2:heart: 9:heart:
      Hero bets $0.10, BB calls $0.10, fold

      Turn: ($0.32, 2 players) A:diamond:
      Hero bets $0.24, BB calls $0.24

      River: ($0.80, 2 players) 2:spade:
      Hero bets $0.40, BB raises to $1.00, Hero calls $0.60

      It seems that preflop I should have raised with a hand like this, but a call is not that much of a worse move. The play till river seemed fine. The river raise got me confused. Is the call the right move?

      BB shows 5:heart: 3:heart: (Flush, Queen High)
      Hero mucks 9:spade: A:heart: (Two Pair, Aces and Nines)
      BB wins $2.66

      Hello faronel,

      Preflop: Rather raise those kind of hands than complete if you want to play them at all. Safest play would be of course to just fold the hand and take a new one.

      As played
      Postflop: A bit overplayed on river. Even if you are getting good odds on river, he ain't raising there with a lot worse hands. Therefore it should be rather a Bet/Fold than Bet/Call.

      Best regards.
