      You can basically cbet any flop when you're heads-up.
      Potsize on flop is $1.10 and your remaining stack is $1.50.

      Normally we'd make a 2/3potsized cbet, which would be $0.70-$0.75.
      When you'll have to bet more than half of your stack you should move all-in immediately. So in this case it's a close call, but I think you can just push this flop!!

      The chance that he's holding a Q isn't that big, so you're probably in front here as well.

      a Q or a T... and draws ... i was scared to cbet that flop with 99 :) i know it was only one player and should push here but he is a good player and i think he had me , although he checked the flop, the A on the turn scared me even more :) maybe he was drawing to a str8

      A good player still has no influence on the outcome of the cards.
      Big chance he's holding Ax here.
      Ok, a Q or a T, but a draw isn't beating you here, since it's just a draw. If you push immediately, you don't give him the odds to call for his draw, so that will be profitable for you on the long run.

      And the chance of him having a Q or a T isn't huge.

      So next time, just cbet! :)

      2 Overcards on the board makes your Pocket pair worthless. Whethers its Pocket nines or Queens.
      I would have c/f all the way ;)

      i got to take sides with DeQuip here .. but still it's just 51% to 49% :) but what he said about the ods of calling makes sense... so i guess pushing is best...

      Hi lyly13,

      raise preflop to 0.6 because you are oop and then push any flop with 1$ remaining.

      Best Regards
