      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $3.89
      SB:
      $2.07
      BB:
      $0.94
      MP1:
      $2.67
      MP2:
      $1.06
      MP3:
      $6.03
      CO (Hero):
      $2.00


      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q, Q.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, BU calls $0.08, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.19) 9, J, 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.16, BU calls $0.16.

      Turn: ($0.51) T (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      River: ($0.51) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.46, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.51.

      villain is around 30/10 VPIP/PFR over 30 hands.

      1) Betsize on flop: should I bet bigger? pot? Not sure why I didn't tbh. :P
      2) I check turn as the flush draw completes (and gutshot I realise now), and I intend to fold to a bet. Is this too weak? Should I play bet/fold instead?

      thank you guys. <3

      Hello ArtCascade,

      You are overplaying your hand here. There ain't many worse hands which Call you vs such a HUGE bet on the river. At the best could bet something like 1/2 pot size.

      Flop is fine though.

      Best Regards.
