BTN: $41.58
Hero (SB): $21.45
BB: $10.45
UTG: $10.15
MP: $21.84
CO: $10.00

Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with J:diamond: Q:club:
4 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BB raises to $0.90, Hero calls $0.60

Flop: ($1.80) Q:diamond: 3:heart: 9:heart: (2 players)
Hero checks, BB bets $0.80, Hero calls $0.80

Hero checks, BB checks

River: ($3.40) K:club: (2 players)

What do you think about the way hero played this hand? Is it generally good to be sticky with pairs in a blind war against an unknown? Should I have folded preflop or do I need to protect my SB raising range by calling with some average hands like QJo?
