      Known players:       

      0.1/0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.65 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 9:diamond: , 2:heart:
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.25, 6 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.60) K:spade: , 9:spade: , A:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 checks.

      Turn: ($0.60) K:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 bets $0.25, Hero calls $0.25.

      I felt his bet was weak, then the river gave me a bluff card. Should these types of plays be avoided with SSS at all times?

      River: ($1.10) 6:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.75, UTG2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.10

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows two pairs, kings and nines (9d 2h)

      Hero wins with two pairs, kings and nines (9d 2h)

      I've seen people make this minbet with complete air just to make you fold since you've shown weakness (indeed you have a weak hand)

      howeve I think I'm just folding without a very specific read and or stats (99% of the times also with a read) you may have another very tought spot on the river because if you check you are facing another bet very often and if you bet he will fold everything you beat and raise/call when he has you beat. He doesn't look like a good player so bluff cards are not always good.

      Since is a freeplay , since 92o is not a decent hand and since you only have bottom pair no kicker on a AKK9 board double suited I'm folding

      very easy fold

      the hand is not over on the turn, you will often face a river bet that you cant call, so why call the turn bet?

      and what are you doing on the river??

      Your play makes absolutely no sense, just cf all the way
