      Hi chaps.
      I seem to have had a brutal session this evening - everything going wrong! Might post a few hands to learn which were just variance and which were bad play.
      Here's the first one.

      Known players:

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.85 by

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9:diamond: , 9:club:
      UTG1 raises to $0.08, 4 folds, CO calls $0.08, BU folds, Hero calls $0.07, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.26) 9:heart: , 4:diamond: , 3:spade: (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG1 checks, CO bets $0.06, Hero calls $0.06, UTG1 folds.

      Turn: ($0.38) K:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.18, CO raises to $0.90 (All-In), Hero calls $0.72.

      River: ($2.18) 8:spade: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $2.18

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      CO shows three-of-a-kind, kings (Kd Kc)
      Hero shows (9d 9c)

      CO wins with three-of-a-kind, kings (Kd Kc)

      Preflop: standard set-mining
      Flop: ok, you'll say I should have raised. The reason I only called was that I thought my hand was fairly invincible on such a board and no-one else had anything, so I wanted to give someone the chance to bluff or catch something rather than just scare them all away immediately with a raise.
      Turn: his shove triggers alarm bells but I don't think I can fold here given his stack size and I have the 2nd nuts

      Bad luck, or my own fault due to stupid slowplay on the flop?

      Hello member001,

      I'd even consider Check/Raising since it's so small bet, although donking would be an option as well often times maybe even better. But as played turn I'd as well Bet the turn bigger ~$0,25.

      Best regards.
