      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      UTG2 (Hero):
      $1.83
      MP1:
      $1.59
      MP2:
      $1.59
      MP3:
      $3.31
      CO:
      $1.16
      BU:
      $1.12
      SB:
      $5.00
      BB:
      $1.97


      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with K, A.
      Hero raises to $0.08, 3 folds, CO calls $0.08, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.19) A, A, K (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.02, Hero calls $0.02.

      Turn: ($0.23) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.14, CO calls $0.14.

      River: ($0.51) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.48, CO calls $0.48.

      Final Pot: $1.47.

      I thought he was likely to hold a pocket pair, suited connectors or similar because of his preflop play. Ax is rather unlikely since only one Ace is left. Therefore, I was afraid he would fold after betting on the flop. By checking I wanted him to bet with Kx or Pocket pair. Since he apparently had nothing but a draw at the most I bet myself on turn and river. But not too big to keep him in the hand in case of possible draws.

      How would you play this hand?

      Many thanks in advance!!

      Hello jockel80,

      Just Bet all the streets yourself so you could easily shove the river. As played I guess I'd still shove there for the reason that I still see them Calling with any flush or even trips.

      Best regards.
