      Can I really just fold the river here? These spots keep happening to me and its so Goddamn frustrating! Even re-reading this hand makes me want to explode.

      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.98 by

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 2:heart: , 2:diamond:
      5 folds, Hero calls $0.10, 2 folds, SB calls $0.05, BB checks.

      Flop: ($0.30) K:diamond: , 4:club: , 2:spade: (3 players)
      SB bets $0.1, BB folds, Hero calls $0.10.

      Turn: ($0.50) T:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.3, Hero raises to $1.00, SB calls $0.70.

      River: ($2.50) 9:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $1.87, Hero calls $1.87.

      Final Pot: $6.24

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (2h 2d)
      SB shows a flush, ace high (As 4s)

      SB wins with a flush, ace high (As 4s)

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Flop: Why ain't ya just raising it right on flop? I'd raise it right on flop and start building up the pot.

      As played
      Turn: Otherwise I'd even raise bigger on turn ~$1,20 or something similar.
      River: And not much you can do, he may as well bet here with 2pairs although his line seems to be very strong when we take into account that he min-bet flop and as well on turn and then betting like near pot on river. Which usually indicates to a strong hand.

      Best regards.

      I dont raise the flop because the board is so dry and I'm not geting value from much. I doubt he's minbetting a King here.

      I would min bet a weak king in this spot for just that reason few believe a donk bet on a dry board.

      But as played veriz is right much bigger turn raise you need to protect.
