      Known players:

      0,01/0,02 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.98 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with K:spade: , Q:heart:
      Hero raises to $0,08, CO folds, BU calls $0,08, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($0,19) J:heart: , J:spade: , T:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,12, BU calls $0,12.

        I think I should rather check/call. Betting makes no sense: There are not so many hands he will fold to my bet (99-22). He will call with Tx (against which I have 1:1 odds). But many stronger hands (Jx, OESD, FD) he will call with.

      Turn: ($0,43) 4:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,28, BU calls $0,28.

        Again Check/Call?

      River: ($0,99) A:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,49, BU raises to $1,14, Hero calls $0,65.

        Check/Fold? There are too many hands (Flushes, JJ, TT, JT) that beat me.

      Final Pot: $3,27

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Ks Qh)
      BU shows a flush, ace high (As 6s)

      BU wins with a flush, ace high (As 6s)

      Best regards,

      Hello jockel80,

      Turn: Kinda problematic turn card actually, I might even just give it up against that kind of player. Since we can't even put any A or 9 as clear outs.

      As played
      River: As you went for value with your hand, I wouldn't say that I am Check/Folding here, rather betting it and maybe even making the crying Call. While he could even sometimes have here some Ax type of hands. And we need only like 20% equity to make it profitable Call. Rather just give it up on turn. :)

      Best regards.
