      PokerStars - $0.02 NL - Holdem - 8 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      Hero (MP+1): $2.32
      CO: $1.29
      BTN: $1.24
      SB: $1.88
      BB: $1.09
      UTG: $3.61
      UTG+1: $5.00
      MP: $5.04

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has 9:spade: 9:club:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.02, fold, BTN raises to $0.04, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.02

      Flop: ($0.11, 2 players) 3:diamond: 8:club: Q:diamond:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.02, Hero calls $0.02

      Turn: ($0.15, 2 players) 6:spade:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.02, Hero calls $0.02

      River: ($0.19, 2 players) 4:club:
      Hero checks, BTN bets $0.14, fold

      BTN wins $0.18

      Should I just fold here on the flop/turn? I think these min bets could mean anything ranging from a very strong hand to a weak draw to a gutshot, really. Of course when he suddenly bets big on the river it's a clear fold (the standard minbet/minbet/big bet is often indicates a lot of strength from what I've seen). Just not sure about flop/turn.

      This hand is played really bad for me. You should raise preflop, why did you limp PP from mp?

      Misclick X(

      I would definitely agree to raise pre. Should have mentioned this in my post though...

      Yep, that's why it's hard to say anything about this hand, cause your raise pre would change this spot to a different one :) Everything that happened postflop was a consequence of this missclick pre

      Hello TinoLaan,

      Preflop: Raise it up, the hand is strong enough. :)

      As played
      Postflop: He can't really represent that much there. Assuming that any stronger pairs or made hands would most likely bet earlier already bigger on the flop or turn. Therefore I'd call him down on the river.

      Best Regards.
