      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has 6:spade: 6:diamond:

      UTG raises to $0.15, Hero calls $0.15, fold, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.37, 2 players) 2:heart: 2:spade: Q:club:
      UTG bets $0.25, Hero calls $0.25

      Turn: ($0.87, 2 players) 3:club:
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.87, 2 players) 9:spade:
      UTG bets $0.35, Hero calls $0.35

      Should I call flop and river?
      On flop my hand could be best, and he check turn when nine comes, he could have A high, some pockets below Q.
      Hi most likely wouldn't bet there A high? So I gues I should fold?

      I'd prefer a turn bet here by you to protect against overcards and often get a free showdown. Obviously it's a bet-fold line.

      As played I think you have to be calling a lot of river cards. Especially ones below T. How many 9x hands are in his utg opening range? I think he can also be betting TT/JJ here for value.

      Based on his bet size it looks like he's either making a crap bluff (which you let him have in his range here by checking the turn), or a nicely sized value bet. Your hand is fairly face up here so it's not a great spot. Interested to see if veriz thinks it's a call or fold.

      Hello daun666,

      Turn: Rather bet the turn and protect from any kind of overcards.

      As played
      River: If he wanted to bluff then I guess he would just Bet it on turn as well. More likely seems that we are beat, I don't think that he would turn his Ax hand into bluff here anyways. Therefore if you want to take a note on him then Calling should ain't mistake vs such a small amount.

      Best regards.
