      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Opponent is a tag.

      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 9, 9.
      MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.40, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($0.95) 8, 4, Q (2 players)
      CO bets $0.68, Hero calls $0.68.

      Turn: ($2.31) 6 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $1.50, CO folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.31.

      I would check behind on a dry board.

      If you decide to float I think we should barrel the turn on almost any board and go for a free showdown depending on the player, on turn and river card. Sometimes we can even fire another barrel on the river if we put him on a pair on the flop but a scare card came from him on the turn etc.

      A check behind can produce scare cards on the river enabling villain to bet again or you might still lose if he has Q and weak kicker.

      you can 3-bet your hand pf.
      I´d often raise these boards, since you have to fold to turn barrel and players would often barrel there with flushdraw (when spade comes) or also scared cards, like K or A.
      So turning your hand kind of bluff and raising on the flop is often better than float and then try to take it away on the turn
