      I don't have much information on the players I'm up against but the table is very loose, and these two players have been in a fair amount of hands.


      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $3.11
      SB:
      $3.20
      BB (Hero):
      $2.19
      MP3:
      $1.53
      CO:
      $1.89


      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, A.
      MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.06, BU folds, SB calls $0.05, Hero raises to $0.18, CO calls $0.12, SB calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.54) 5, 8, 2 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, CO bets $0.34, SB calls $0.34, Hero calls $0.34.

      Turn: ($1.56) Q (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, CO checks.

      River: ($1.56) K (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.00.

      Final Pot: $2.56.

      On the flop I thought the first in bet likely a bluff as he was playing a lot of hands, but I wasn't sure about the call.

      When they both checked the turn I just took the free card. Probably would have folded to a bet.

      Had top pair top kicker on the river so I bet.

      Hello Edukator99,

      Preflop: You have to raise bigger here, I might even do it ~$0.28(3x raise+1 call+being OOP) since we are OOP.

      As played
      Flop: Easy Check/Fold, I don't see any good reason why we should continue, we ain't getting good equity against them anyways, therefore just fold and don't put yourself into trouble.
      Turn: Check/Fold.
      River: I'd bet a bit smaller, ~$0.80 to get Called by worse, they will just fold their better hands here.

      Best regards.
