      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.02 BB (9 handed) - PokerStars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      UTG ($1.05)
      UTG+1 ($0.84)

      SB ($4)
      BB ($7.83)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 10, A
      1 fold, UTG+1 calls $0.02, 1 fold, Hero bets $0.10, 4 folds, BB calls $0.08, UTG+1 calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.31) K, A, 8 (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $0.20, BB calls $0.20, UTG+1 calls $0.20

      Turn: ($0.91) 3 (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG+1 checks, Hero checks

      River: ($0.91) 9 (3 players)
      BB bets $0.48, 1 fold, Hero folds

      Total pot: $0.91 | Rake: $0.04

      BB- VPIP: 37, PFR: 21, AF:0.9. UTG+1- VPIP:40, PFR: 10

      On the turn I thought that one of them should have completed their flush draw or holds better ace so checked.

      Should I have called the river? :f_grin:

      As played:
      1) Would bet ~0.25$ (two opponents + wet board);

      2) Bet/fold turn;
      K J, K Q can easily slowplay their nut flush though I see them raising your bet.

      3) Check behind/fold river.
      Now if one of them calls your bet on the turn he can expect another bet from you on the river and then shove(when they have nut flush). Obviously check behind if he checks. So you can sometimes get free showdown with your bet on the turn. If he leads with 1/2+ pot size bet I would fold, though could consider calling something about 1/3 potsize.

      Hello IflopMonsters,

      That's kinda close although our plan kind was to go for pot control on turn with Checking behind and he is giving us pretty good odds, sometimes maybe even bet there with Kx and of course has a lot worse Aces as well in his range. Therefore I'd Call the river as played. Otherwise seems to be also fine to Check behind the turn for pot control but it's better to Bet/Fold the turn than Check/Fold both streets, which may be a bit too weak.

      Best regards.
