      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, A.
      3 folds, MP2 raises to $0.40, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.40, 2 folds, Hero raises to $2.00, MP2 folds, CO calls $1.60.

      Flop: ($4.45) Q, K, 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.00, CO calls $3.00.

      Turn: ($10.45) 2 (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.59, CO calls $6.30.

      River: ($24.34) 7 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $24.34.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, kings and twos(Kc As).
      CO shows a pair of twos(Js Ts).

      Hero wins with two pairs, kings and twos(Kc As).

      im bb, and facing 1 bet and 1 call, i reraise 4x+caller ( cuz im oop, and i think that i need to raise a bit more oop ).

      the raiser folds and caller calls.

      I hit tptk and flush draw is possible so i bet (bet size is the same whether i hit or not, around 2/3), i put my villain on Ajs+ 99+ , he calls so i think he hit a pair or is drawing, I think Im ahead but could be outdrawn, so since pot is bigger then my stack, Im oop and I think hes drawing, on blank turn I shove it.

      Did i play it good?

      Hello Wertoph,

      Preflop: Yeah, I totally like the reasons you wrote and as well the reason that we are OOP and we doing the raise bigger. Well done!
      Postflop: And when we decided to 3bet then I don't think that we are getting away from here, he may easily even have a lot worse hands and sometimes even draws.

      Best regards.
