      Microgaming - £0.02 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      CO: £2.00
      BTN: £2.91
      SB: £2.00
      Hero (BB): £3.40
      UTG: £1.27

      SB posts SB £0.01, Hero posts BB £0.02, CO posts DB £0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: £0.05) Hero has 2:heart: 9:spade:

      fold, CO checks, BTN calls £0.02, SB calls £0.01, Hero checks

      Flop: (£0.08, 4 players) 2:diamond: 9:club: 3:heart:
      SB checks, Hero bets £0.06, fold, BTN raises to £0.26, fold, Hero raises to £0.60, BTN raises to £2.89 and is all-in, Hero calls £2.29

      Turn: (£5.86, 2 players) K:club:

      River: (£5.86, 2 players) 3:spade:

      Is it okay to go broke like that on flop?
      Is ma assumption right that fish may go broke there with sets, 23 and 9x (x=T+)?

      Hi.

      It depends on how bad the player is. If he is capable of limping KK/AA and going broke with those in limped pots then 3b/call is fine with two pairs.

      But the stack to pot ratio is a little too large which may discourage me from going broke.

      In this case I think BU is probably a really bad player when he open limps from BU so I think it's acceptable.

      Thanks

      Forgot to mention but the BTN was 77/8 over small sample.

      Ok I think he is definitely capable of limping QQ-AA here and going broke on the flop with these hands so i think your play is fine
