      Is my betsizing correct? (He have 1.18 left after his minibet on turn)

      Known players:

      0,02/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with K:heart: , K:spade:
      UTG1 calls $0,05, Hero raises to $0,25, 7 folds, UTG1 calls $0,20.

      Flop: ($0,57) 9:diamond: , 3:spade: , 2:heart: (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $0,15, Hero raises to $0,50, UTG1 calls $0,35.

      Turn: ($1,57) 6:diamond: (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $0,05, Hero raises to $0,50, UTG1 calls $0,45.

      River: ($2,57) Q:heart: (2 players)
      UTG1 raises $0,73 (All-In), Hero calls $0,73.

      Final Pot: $4,03

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG1 shows (8d 8c)
      Hero shows a pair of kings (Kh Ks)

      Hero wins with a pair of kings (Kh Ks)

      I like your play in this hand.

      Flop raise could be even 0,40-,45.

      Turn raise I like really much. If you raise more, he still has the option to fold. (I would probably raise sth like 0,70; sure there aren't many draws but why not build the pot while you can).

      Nice play.

      I also liked how you played it.
      you can put him all-in on the turn, although since he likely has 2-5 outs so you don´t mind betting half pot and rest on the river
