      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.
