      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

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

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.08, fold, CO calls $0.08, fold, fold, fold

      Flop: ($0.19, 2 players) T:spade: 5:club: T:club:
      Hero bets $0.10, CO calls $0.10

      Turn: ($0.39, 2 players) T:diamond:
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.25, fold

      CO wins $0.38

      Bet the flop pretty small to get away from it cheap if he would raise. Not sure what to make of the call though. Maybe a smaller pair? Maybe a draw? Anyway, decided to give up because he was so short. Right play to make?

      Hello TinoLaan,

      Giving up the turn is still way too weak there. You should be consider CBetting it bigger on the flop and also even 2nd barreling the turn instead of just Check/Folding. The guy could easily have a lot of worse hands there and even pure floats with Ace high.

      Best Regards.
