      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is CO with 9 :diamond: 9 :spade:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, 2 folds, BB calls $1

      Flop: ($3.25) 5 :club: 4 :club: Q :heart: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2.00, BB raises to $7, Hero folds

      Villain is not folding better to me, he is calling sometimes with worse (draws) but rather x/r, and he folds worse (so I make him fold some hands w equity though).

      what line whould you choose in this spot and why?

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Most likely tough to say while he is unknown nitty opponent who has mainly PPs in his range. Therefore I would also for the first time just Bet/Fold it, although I'd do it bigger ~$2,50 cause I would assume you would do the same with Qx.

      The only hope here is that he just turns some hands into bluff and even those hands could be TT/JJ which we don't beat.

      Best Regards.
