      Preflop: Hero is CO with 9:heart: , 9:diamond:
      MP3 folds, Hero calls $0.04, BU folds, SB calls $0.02, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.12) 5:diamond: , 2:heart: , 2:diamond: (3 players)
      SB checks, BB bets $0.09, Hero calls $0.09, SB folds.

      Turn: ($0.30) 6:heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.24, Hero calls $0.24.

      River: ($0.78) 7:heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.58, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $1.36

      This time last month, this was an instacall for me but I'm learning! Should I have raised on the flop? The guy was very tight which is why I took the check-call line. What do you think?

      I don`t like your limp before flop. I prefer raising them around $0,16, because they are dificult to play in limping pots and you gave blinds free flop, where they can have any 2 cards, that can beat you. So you limp and there came nice pot for you. I think you shoud re-raise here and check/fold on turn if oponent call you. Here he can have even 52 or FD or he just have 5 with some kicker. But because your hand don`t improve on turn I think you shoud fold. I think oponent show too much agresion so I prefer fold. But as I say, you shou raise before flop.

      Hello Ghartman,

      Preflop: 99 is way too strong to just limp here. Rather raise it up and take down the pot right here.

      As played
      Postflop: Doubt that I would play it much differently. But raise it preflop. ;)

      Best Regards.
