      Hello everyone, I'm back with another question regarding my play.

      First of all, I would like you to know a little more about the hand.This opponent(MP3) is a tricky one.The same thing happened twice before this hand:

      1st situation:pre-flop: He raises 0.08, I reraise with KK, he calls.
      flop:A flushdraw flops, I bet big for protection(overpair), he folds.

      2nd situation:pre-flop: He raises 0.08, I reraise with AA, he calls.
      flop:A flushdraw flops, I bet for protection(overpair), he folds.

      And this, my friends, is the third situation, in which my opponent is probably pissed, thinking I'm bluffing, so he would've called a bet on the river.

      This is the hand itself:
      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.90 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K:spade: , K:club:
      3 folds, MP3 raises to $0.06, Hero raises to $0.12, 3 folds, MP3 calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.27) T:diamond: , 8:club: , 6:diamond: (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero bets $0.2, MP3 calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($0.67) J:spade: (2 players)
      MP3 bets $0.4, Hero calls $0.40.

      River: ($1.47) A:diamond: (2 players)
      MP3 checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $1.47

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      MP3 shows a pair of aces (Ac 9c)
      Hero shows (Ks Kc)

      MP3 wins with a pair of aces (Ac 9c)

      Any advice is welcome, the harsher the better:)

      Thanks in advance:)

      Hello Scuipici,

      Preflop: You have to raise bigger here to get more value from and also you are just giving great odds for him to Call with any cards. ~$0,20.

      As played
      Postflop: Seems to be fine, river is very thin value, although I like the Check behind sometimes even more, for the given reason that he still might trap us or something similar, or maybe even have 2pairs.

      Best regards.
