      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K, K.
      MP2 calls $0.10, MP3 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, BU calls $0.40, SB folds, BB calls $0.30, MP2 calls $0.30.

      Flop: ($1.65) 2, 9, 5 (4 players)
      BB checks, MP2 checks, Hero bets $1.20, BU calls $1.20, BB folds, MP2 folds.

      Turn: ($4.05) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $2.20, Hero calls $2.20.

      River: ($8.45) T (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $5.10, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $8.45.

      BU at time of hand 13-10, 9 3b (93 hands).

      I don't like this laydown, but can we find a call? I felt I was probably being floated on the flop and checked the turn to let it happen - villain previously observed floating - but is the villain really going to give our cbet so little credit in a 4 way pot?

      I'm putting him on 22, 55, 77-JJ, T9s.

      Hey Jaissica,

      I would have played this hand different from the flop by picking a smaller bet-sizing. The board is very dry, you want to make sure worse hands can call - and your bet will look pretty strong multiway. $0.80 would be fine imo, perhaps even smaller.

      I would then follow this up with a value bet on turn and bet/fold. You should still do this in your case, it's just that you will possibly be up vs a stronger range due to your larger flop sizing.

      As played I don't think you can check/fold the turn. Villain might have a 9x etc. Vs a large bet on river you are usually up against a set or 9T.
