      UTG ($11.10)
      MP ($22)
      Hero (Button) ($17.65)
      SB ($7.70) 55/10/0.9/31 86 hands
      BB ($9)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with 8:diamond: , 9:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, SB calls $0.35, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.90) 10:club: , K:club: , Q:diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.60, SB calls $0.60

      Turn: ($2.10) J:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.30, SB raises to $2.60, Hero ?

      I got the straight. But he needs only an A for a better straight. What to do?

      Total pot: $4.70 | Rake: $0.20

      Im not sure what "55/10/0.9/31" is exactly but I wouldnt play 89o against them unless they were tight and will fold to a steal.

      The flop is horrible for you, you are beat. I check/fold here.

      Turn, I would go for check/call since you have the low straight and he probably called your preflop raise with an Ace specially since you dont have one.

      The answer to your question is fold if you ask me =) Specially if he min raises you, looks like hes begging for a call.

      hi
      this is a bad flop to cbet especialy against a 55 vpip guy . i would check / fold
      as play with no history i like to fold . if you think he is able to raise 2 pair then call and check call river
