      SB: $5 (100 bb)
      BB: $3.49 (69.8 bb) 19/7/1.0/9.1/60/28
      CO: $14.31 (286.2 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $5.78 (115.6 bb) 22/16/4.0/0.0/50/28

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 2 9
      CO folds, Hero raises to $0.15, SB folds, BB calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.32) 9 T 5 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.20, BB calls $0.20

      Turn: ($0.72) Q (2 players)
      BB bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.45, BB calls $0.35

      His bet was so bad that it was crying to be bluffed. I guess I should have raised higher, but should I have raised at all?

      River: ($1.62) J (2 players)
      BB bets $0.75, Hero folds

      Results:
      $1.62 pot ($0.07 rake)
      Final Board: 9 T 5 Q J
      BB showed and won $1.55 ($0.75 net)
      Hero mucked 2 9 and lost (-$0.80 net)

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Preflop: Fold it here? :)

      As played
      Postflop: Totally overplayed, I'd at the best just Call the turn, although at some point I might even fold cause the Q improves his range. That's a good example why we shouldn't be playing those type of hands preflop.

      Best Regards.
