      0.05/0.10 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8:club: , 8:heart:
      7 folds, SB calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.40, SB calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($0.80) 9:club: , J:club: , 6:diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.80) A:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.30, Hero calls $0.30.

      River: ($1.40) 5:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.50, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $1.90

      So, should I have immediately folded after the Ace appeared and my opponent raised? Presumably it was correct to fold after the second raise? Advice greatly appreciated.

      Hey Tim,

      - Preflop: You can raise to 5 BB here because of SB limping.
      - On flop you have to check/fold, you have a trash hand. EDIT: Sorry, you c-bet here as he chacked to you.
      - On turn you could think of calling his bet because of your flush draw, you have nearly 4:1 pot odds, but your FD is quite weak, so I would actually advise folding.
      - On river fold is a must, as there are two overcards to your pair on board.

      EDIT: It's very important that you post your stack size! ;)

      Thanks for that; I will be sure to include stack size next time. BTW, what is 'FD', as in "but your FD is quite weak"?

      Cheers,
      T

      I think you could continuation bet the flop after he checked it to you. The flop is kinda drawy, but you were the preflop aggressor (hence you could easily have strong draw like AKcc, top pair, overpair or even a set here) and you only face 1 opponent who is probably kinda weak as he only completed originally.
      Bet around 50 cents and give up against a resistance.
      If you raise to 5 bb preflop (because he is counted as a limper), and you have 15 or less behind, just push all-in.

      Yeah I agree with Meiffert you should cbet on the flop, 2/3 of the pot - about 0.60. If that means more than half of your stack, just push.

      preflop 4bb is fine here
