      PokerStars - $0.02 NL (6 max) ZOOM - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BTN): $2.47
      SB: $3.85
      BB: $1.00
      UTG: $1.00
      MP: $2.35
      CO: $2.05

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has A:heart: 2:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.06, fold, BB calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.13, 2 players) 9:club: Q:diamond: 9:heart:
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.06, BB calls $0.06

      Turn: ($0.25, 2 players) A:diamond:
      BB checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.25, 2 players) 2:spade:
      BB bets $0.26, fold

      PF: Standard, should I be adjusting raise sizes against half stacks?

      F: Bet to try to take the pot down.

      T: Villain will probably fold Q so I'm isolating against myself against better hands if I bet.

      R: Just reeks of 9x, could be Ax but I only split the pot so I manage to fold top pair, go me :) !

      But should be assume villain could be calling with broadways on flop, as this might change things?

      Thanks :)

      Hello Raknyo,

      What's the reason for betting so small on the flop? You are not really having fold equity with such a bet. Though as played I'd just Bet the turn also for value from draws/Qx.

      You turned your hand into bluff-catcher and whilst you could easily even face a bluff there whilst show very weak play. ;)

      Best Regards.
