      Hi All

      I know some will say I shouldn't have even been in the hand, as I was early pos, but BR is for NL2 when playing BSS, and some of the hands being played are so bad, can I really just muck AQs?

      So if I am going to play it, I am going to open raise.

      That's for the beginning. For the end, my opponent is all-in, I can't face another bet, I have an overcard with the nut flush draw and two cards to come. I can't fold can I?

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with Q:heart: , A:heart:
      Hero raises to $0.08, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.08, 5 folds.

      Flop: ($0.19) 5:heart: , K:spade: , 9:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.10, MP2 raises to $0.20 (All-In), Hero calls $0.10.

      Turn: ($0.59) 8:diamond:
      River: ($0.59) 9:diamond: (1 players)

      Final Pot: $0.59

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of nines (Qh Ah)
      MP2 shows two pairs, kings and nines (Jd Kc)

      MP2 wins with two pairs, kings and nines (Jd Kc)

      All the best
