Totally confused on what line is right for flop and turn . Was new to table , so no reads.

\$0.05/\$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

Known players:
BU = (\$4.37)
SB = (\$14.18)
BB = (\$10.00)
UTG1 = (\$7.76)
UTG2 = (\$10.00)
MP1 = (\$8.96)
MP2 = (\$4.90)
MP3 = (\$5.05)
CO (Hero) = (\$9.26)

Preflop: Hero is CO with A, Q.
5 folds, Hero raises to \$0.25, BU calls \$0.25, 2 folds, BB folds.

Flop: (\$0.65) Q, 9, 9 (2 players)
Hero bets \$0.30, BU raises to \$0.70, Hero calls \$0.40.

Turn: (\$2.05) 4 (2 players)
Hero checks, BU bets \$1.00, Hero calls \$1.00.

River: (\$4.05) 2 (2 players)
Hero bets \$0.40, BU calls \$0.40.

Final Pot: \$4.85.
Results follow (highlight to see):

BU shows two pairs, queens and nines(Qc Kh).
Hero shows two pairs, queens and nines(As Qh).

Hero wins with two pairs, queens and nines(As Qh).

Hello,

Unfortunately the suits of the cards on the board didn't show up, so this is going to make the evaluation uncertain, since I can't read the board.
I would suggest you to read THIS thread and convert your hand with a hand converter.

Also, from what can I see now, you aren't playing full-stacked which is a mistake - you should have at least 100bb in the beginning of every hand.

When you convert the hand, you can post it here and press the "Advice the judge to have a second look" button so I'll come back and review it.

Best,
Plamen

Oops ,My bad. User our poker strategy hand conv , but I had copied the hand directly from converter, instead of the code.

I had 93 BBs at the start of the hand. Would the extra 7 BBs make a difference long term ?

I know the flop bet was small (half pot ) , but I thought I had a strong hand on such a dry board, hence wanted villain to call my bet.

Turn , wanted to check raise him , but decided not to since I felt that he may be repping ,9 or KK+ here. I could not fold either as I felt that I had showdown value

On seeing the hand now , Im still unable to make up my mind on what is the right line in Flop/ Turn

Hey,

Well, 7bb are likely to make a significant difference in the long term.

Is this your standard sizing from CO here?

As played, you should bet \$0.4 on the flop. Would you bet \$0.3 with A2 for example?
When he raises I would call here as well and plan to call down.

I don't like the idea of check/raising but if you think he only reps KK+, 9x why are you calling then? I doubt that he has KK+ here, he could has 9x but considering our flop bet he might be raising Qx for value here.

As played, if we go for a donk on the river, why do we bet 4bb? I would usually check/call here.

Best,
Plamen
