      hi this is my first time posting in the BSS forum. I still mostly play SSS but I want to have a go at BSS and hopefully I can eventually switch to BSS.

      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 5:heart: , 5:diamond:
      3 folds, MP2 calls $0.05, MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.20, Hero calls $0.20, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.67) 9:heart: , A:club: , 7:spade: (3 players)
      MP2 checks, CO checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.67) J:spade: (3 players)
      MP2 checks, CO checks, Hero bets $0.50, MP2 calls $0.50, CO folds.

      River: ($1.67) 2:club: (2 players)
      MP2 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $1.67

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of fives (5h 5d)
      MP2 shows a pair of nines (Qc 9s)

      MP2 wins with a pair of nines (Qc 9s)

      Since I was in position and everyone indicated weakness on both the flop and the turn, I decided to bet/fold. Is this line correct?
