      Ni nam4Ka,

      The best advise what I could give you is:
      - follow the starting hands chart (that includes folding Q9s preflop)
      - follow the proper bankroll management (not saying you're not doing that, but just to remind): at least 20 buy-in for level so 200$ for NL 10, for beginners it is advise even 30 buy-in.
      - buy-in 100BB. That is 10$ for NL 10. Then you can profitable call for set value or if you hit big hand you would double up to 200BB, not to 80 or 100BB.

      As played: fold pf. You don't want to get all-in with Q9s. You're often dominated. For example if you hit Q (then opponent could hold QT, QJ, QQ, QK, QA).
      On the flop I would fold, since you hold top pair, medium kicker and player bet out close to put. I don't believe that you´re here that often to make shove profitable.

      On that hand i raised my pocket 66 preflop. Got called by J7 of spades and Q9 of hearts. I made my set so out of poss, and against 2 oponents i checked it. It was a rainbow flop with n o str draws. The J7 guy raised the pot, probably tried to bluff, Q9 guy reraised all in So i was happy there and went all in as well. J7 called and made a runner runner flush. Thats what is the hand about :P .

      You played well in my opinion, but I'd raise 4BBs pf instead of 3,5BBs. Just bad luck, but don't talk bad about those ultra donkeys because they give us the money :D

      If you play poker, especially BSS, you'll see that a few more times. But if you play well you will see 5 other times where you get the money back because they pay you off like hell ^^
