      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K, T.
      MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, CO folds, BU calls $0.02, Hero calls $0.01, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.08) J, A, A (4 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, MP3 checks, BU bets $0.04, Hero calls $0.04, BB folds, MP3 folds.

      Turn: ($0.16) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      River: ($0.16) Q (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.08, BU calls $0.08.

      Final Pot: $0.32.

      I think I might have made much more profit if I was betting differently. Just joined the table (7th hand).

      Results follow:

      BU shows two pairs, aces and queens(Qd Jc).
      Hero shows a royal flush(Ks Ts).

      Hero wins with a royal flush(Ks Ts).

      edit reason: wrong format

      Flop: bet potsize to build up the pot, you have nut flush draw + gutshot which is 13 outs.

      Turn: continue building up the pot, the turn is a blank.

      River: bet bigger or shove since you have the ultimate nuts :D

      thx for responding kenthmp.

      My reasoning for the smaller bet on the river was a semi-slowplay (to show weakness, i.e. get BU to raise so I could shove without scaring him). I guess it didn't work though.

      highlight to read spoiler:

      Seeing his hand, makes me think I made the right decision (maybe even should have checked/bet .02). He hits has a pretty decent hand on the river. Why he doesn't go all in or raise my bet is a bit of a mistery to me...

      Hello uni1102,

      Flop: Nah, you don't have to start up building the pot here against so many opponents, what if we get reraised? Or something similar, I wouldn't really get my chips in there, even if I have royal flush draw.

      Just see the equity if we are against a AT hand for example:
      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 36,818% 36,364% 0,909% 62,727% KsTs
      Player 2: 63,182% 62,727% 0,909% 36,364% ATs, ATo

      Why should we get in our chips? I'd likely also Check/Call here being OOP. When we for example had position then sure why not to bet out.

      As played
      Turn: Check/Call is likely fine, we still don't want to get raised.
      River: Sometimes I might even shove here for example if he would have bet the turn also but as long he didn't and didn't shove any kind of aggression then I would also bet something like ~$0.10 and hope for a reraise since if he wont raise us then he wont Call a shove either. Only you could sometimes overbet a bit but that doesn't bring that much value anyways to us. More likely I'd just bet kinda 3/4 pot and then hope for a reraise from an Ace.

      Best regards.
