      After losing 5 buy-ins, I think I'm tilting atm. I spotted the donk-mistakes right after I played them, but I'm searching for other/minor mistakes now...

      villain is unknown, MP3 is 6.5/6.5/2

      Titan No-Limit Hold'em, $0.02/$0.04 (Titan HH Converter by Kreatief)

      MP1 ($5.47)
      MP2 ($5.21)
      MP3 ($1.15)
      CO ($1.44)
      Button ($3.90)
      SB ($4.07)
      BB ($5) (Hero)
      UTG+1 ($7.52)
      UTG+2 ($9.15)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K:club: , A:diamond:
      UTG+1 calls $0.04, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.04, MP3 raises to 0.28, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.24, UTG+1 calls $0.24, 1 folds,

      Flop: 3:diamond: , 9:diamond: , 8:diamond: ( $0.9 )
      Hero checks, UTG+1 checks, MP3 checks,

      Turn: 3:spade: ( $0.9 )
      Hero checks, UTG+1 bets $0.36, 1 folds, Hero calls $0.36,

      River: J:diamond: ( $1.62 )
      Hero bets $1, UTG+1 calls $1.0,

      Final Pot: $3.52

      I thought about reraising preflop, but since the raise is more then normal and the raiser very tight I just called.
      Should I bet the turn myself?

      it's a weird hand, but i think it's fine to play it like this.

      I bet the flop PS and call a shove. You have 9 outs to the nut flush. Against an overpair < KK you have additional 5 Outs. And you have huge fold equity...

      The hand would get a lot easier if you re-raise AK pre-flop like SHC says.

      hmm.. Also think 3betting preflop would be good for 3 reasons: You are OOP, you don't want UTG+1 & MP2 to call the raise aswell (if you call, it's a lot more likely they will call it aswell), and if you think he will bet little bigger than normally with AA or KK then I definetly want to know this & want to know where I stand with AK.

      Also like betting directly potsize and calling a push, you wouldn't be in bad shape against many hands and like said, you have a lot of fold equity with big bet.

      I don't think I'm in a good shape against someone with 6.5/6.5/2 (only +/- 40 hands, but it gives an idea).

      I'm realising now that I played it weak... Calling was the worst option.
