      Hey guys!

      BB (Hero):
      $2.00
      UTG2:

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, 9.
      UTG2 raises to $0.04, 3 folds, CO calls $0.04, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.02.

      Flop: ($0.13) 2, 9, 3 (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.09, UTG2 folds, CO calls $0.09.

      Turn: ($0.31) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.22, Hero calls $0.22.

      River: ($0.75) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, CO calls $0.20.

      Final Pot: $1.15.
      Results follow:CO shows a straight, six high(5 4).Hero shows a pair of nines(A 9).CO wins with a straight, six high(5 4).



      So what do you think about this one? Did i overplay top pair? Could i avoid losing that much out of position? By the way opponent was playing a loose pre - tight postflop succesful style, and that 's why i called in the beginning.

      i would probably bet/fold turn.
      villain can have pretty much any pair+fd, 9x, or even just one random club.
      we protect our hand and can pretty much easily fold to further aggression by villain

      Yeah, you are right.
      I should try harder in thinking about ranges.

      its tough thinking in ranges, it took me forever to even get the basics down and i am still learning everyday.
      keep posting hands and working hard and it'll come real quick :)

      Hello Erevos,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Rather Bet the turn yourself, you could easily even bet for value there and nor I don't really get the idea of donking the river. Rather Check the river cause I doubt that the he is very likely to bluff in those spots.

      Best Regards.
