      Final Pot: $0.74

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Ks 8s)
      SB shows a full-house, aces full of nines (Ac Kh)

      SB wins with a full-house, aces full of nines (Ac Kh)

      My thinking on the river was that he had played the hand very unaggresively up until then. I didn't think he had the A or 9 as he would have bet the turn? I thought his bet on the river was an attempt to steal the pot, and I thought my K was likely good.

      What should I have done better?

      Thanks

      Hello Jeffers16,

      First of all, if you dind't CBet the flop then there is no point to bet on turn either since the 5 didn't change anything. Just check behind and reevaluate river. River Call is only reasonable if you have reads on the villain otherwise I would just fold.

      Best regards.
