      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)

      Known players:
      BU(Hero):
      $26.30
      SB:
      $26.20
      BB:
      $27.35
      CO:
      $25.00


      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, 9.
      CO folds, Hero raises to $0.75, SB folds, BB calls $0.50.

      Flop: ($1.6) 2, Q, 9 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.90, BB calls $0.90.

      Turn: ($3.4) 5 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.95, BB calls $1.95.

      River: ($7.3) A (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2.50, ?

      It was the first hand of the table. No any stats. Unknown opponent.
      Preflop: Pretty standard to open raise I think.
      Flop: (b/f) I hit a second pair. I c-bet a lot and try to represent a Q here.
      Turn: (b/f) After BB called, I hit a flush-draw and decided to second barrel, also then I don't represent anything more than a Q, I guess. If he 3bets big I'm folding. I also could take a free card in position. What do you prefer to do in this case? Sometimes I try to variate here, but I like to be aggressive most of the time. Another plus is that I can get a free showdown also.
      River: (b/f) Wrong suit comes (for me), but I hit two pair and decided to value bet 2/3 of the pot. Reason for that was, that i still put him on a Q - his line was c/c, c/c, c/?
      I'm wondering why isn't he betting the river. It's a great bluff card the way he played also. So that's is why I think he had some kind of a Q and hopefully he calls then.

      Any other ideas?
