      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):
      $2.08
      SB:
      $1.98
      BB:
      $1.41
      UTG1:

      UTG2:
      $1.12
      MP1:

      MP2:
      $0.76
      MP3:
      $2.42
      CO:
      $0.80


      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q, Q.
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.02, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, CO raises to $0.10, Hero raises to $0.25, 2 folds, UTG2 calls $0.23, 2 folds, CO folds.

      Preflop I'm happy with how I played this. I had a strong hand and strong position.

      Flop: ($0.65) 3, 9, T (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.45, UTG2 raises to $0.87, Hero calls $0.42.

      Final Pot: $2.39.

      On the flop, I'm wondering if my bet size was correct, at 2/3 of the pot, would I ever need to bet more than this against a single opponent, or does protection become more necessary as the player is more of a calling station?

      The limp and then loose call led me to believe that I was either against overcards, AT or a set. I can't recall if the player was loose or not, so I'll have to assume no reads.
