      First of all i would like to say that I'm new to BSS after playing SSS to much so the whole idea of calling first in seems well bad to me... It just seems exploitable somehow, I guess I just feel I'll get isolated often by better hands.

      Anyway, onto the hand; MP3 and CO were playing super tight, So i ignored them and limped, then I have to call MP1's raise for Set Value but Fold To his strong looking Cbet? Its a relatively dry board yet he still bets big. Without a reads I assume folding is best.

      Party Poker
      No Limit Holdem Ring game
      Blinds: $0.05/$0.10
      9 players

      Stack sizes:
      UTG: $14.36
      Hero: $11.32
      MP1: $21.30
      MP2: $10.00
      MP3: $1.85
      CO: $4.20
      Button: $24.95
      SB: $9.32
      BB: $10.00

      Pre-flop: (9 players) Hero is UTG+1 with 8 8
      UTG folds, Hero calls, MP1 raises to $0.5, 6 folds, Hero calls.

      Flop: 9 3 Q ($1.15, 2 players)
      Hero checks, MP1 bets $2, Hero folds.
      Uncalled bets: $2 returned to MP1.

      Final pot: $1.15
