      Called preflop for set-mining, cbeted flop since I'm guessing it missed everyone. Just too late I've realized 1/2pot was too small in this case xD . Halp.

      Definitely raise preflop, try to never open limp. Raise it to $0.08 preflop and go from there, this way you can continue aggression which creates extra fold equity :)

      On the flop as played bet this flop about $0.07 and bet on the turn as well, probably around $0.15-$0.20. If you're raised on the turn you can find an easy fold :)

      But as I said, raise preflop 100% of the time there when you're first into the pot, try to cut out open limping into a pot completely :)

      Hello tengutupiniquim,

      If you are not sure about your postflop skills then playing according the SHC ain't wrong. And with 99 it says to Limp so I don't mind. But on higher limits the problem comes into handy that people will understand your limping range and they will adjust to you. For that given reason you have adjust to that as well on later on and start rather raising with those hands.

      Although 99 is strong enough to even do the raise. :)

      Best regards.
