      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, 9.
      6 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, SB folds, BB calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.65) 6, 5, 9 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.50, BB raises to $1.50, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.15.

      i thought that the check raise there could be done with some draws, 2 pairs and sets. i was thinking whether i should have called or pushed him instead. if i called was i going to call another bet on the turn even if a blank arrived? there are so many cards i was going to be afraid of, 5,6,7,8,9,A. i thought that folding was a better option since i was going to see bad cards so often.

      against middle-stack I´d shove there K9
      His c/r range is often any 9x hand or 98, 67, 57 or just 7x, 8x with overcards
      I think you´re very often ahead on the flop unless player is really nitty which they tend not to be usually
