      I can't find the hand because im a idiot,but i remember i pretty well.9 players,im in the SB with KJs,UTG1 limped,i raise,BB folds,UTG1 calls.
      Flop: 6 K Q. I bet 1/2 pot he calls.Turn:K,i bet 1/2 he calls. River: A,i bet 2/3 of the pot he raises x3.
      Now,my first reaction was a noob reaction "ow,he hit the ace",but in the next second i thought,there are 2 kings on the board,and if he hit the ace why would he raised if he put me on anything but the king,because he would know that i will fold anyway.
      So,if he know i have the king,and he doesnt have AA,then,why is he raising with a pair of asses.
      Then i realised he slowplayed,because i used to do the same,call flop,call turn,raise river.Probably 66,thus the limp in UTG and call the raise.
      What do you guys think?

      Hello Ectoz,

      Flop: As I don't really see the pot amount, then betting 1/2 ain't that great idea, I'd make it bigger depending on the suits and etc but I would consider 2/3 to be normal bet size.

      As played
      Turn: Likely bet again 2/3, 1/2 is way too smallish.
      River: And why do you now decide to bet 2/3? :P There aren't really many worse hands which may Call us, therefore depending on the opponent I decide which my bet size would be, likely 1/2 or something similar. Also as I don't really know how much was your stack, then I'd say it's very close, but often I might even Bet/Fold if the raise size is way too big, and we ain't getting good odds.

      Best regards.
