      What would be the opimal play?
      I did not to raise to keep the second player in the hand.


      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $1.45
      UTG1:
      $1.96
      UTG2:
      $2.02
      MP1:
      $2.22
      MP2:
      $2.75
      MP3:
      $3.72
      CO (Hero):
      $2.00
      BU:
      $0.61
      SB:
      $3.35


      Preflop: Hero is CO with K, K.
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.02, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, BU calls $0.08, SB folds, BB calls $0.06, MP1 calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.33) 7, T, K (4 players)
      BB bets $0.10, MP1 folds, Hero calls $0.10, BU calls $0.10.

      Turn: ($0.63) 4 (3 players)
      BB bets $0.14, Hero calls $0.14, BU calls $0.14.

      River: ($1.05) 9 (3 players)
      BB bets $1.13(All-In), Hero calls $1.13, BU calls $0.29.

      Final Pot: $3.6.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows three of a kind, kings(Ks Kd).
      BB shows a straight, king high(Jd Qs).
      BU shows a straight, king high(Qd Jc).

      BB wins with a straight, king high(Jd Qs).
      BU wins with a straight, king high(Qd Jc).

      Should I always be afraid of straight and flush boards with trips?

      Hello andriixakep,

      And welcome to the forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. Will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      About the hand:
      Preflop: I'd raise it even bigger for 1 limper being in pot, $0,10.
      Flop: While there are so many draws possible I guess I would likely threw a small raise to get his whole stack on turn by that I mean that we can ship it there. We have to protect from any kind of flushdraw or either straightdraw.

      As played
      Turn: Definitely raise it for value, seems like he trying to block-bet it with some draws and which is even very likely, raise for value and protection.

      As played if turn was Called
      River: Not much you beat here anymore, rather just fold it. Flush completes, straights complete.

      Best regards.
