      Preflop: Hero is in the BB with K :diamond: J :heart:
      1 fold, UTG+1 calls 0.10, 5 folds, Villain calls 0.10, 1 fold, Hero checks.

      Flop (0.35) 2 :diamond: K :club: 4 :heart:
      Hero checks, UTG+1 checks, Villain checks.

      Turn (0.35) Q :heart:
      Hero checks, UTG+1 checks, Villain bets 0.30, Hero calls 0.30, 1 fold.

      River (0.95) K :spade:
      Hero bets 0.60, Villain raises to 2.70, Hero moves all-in for 1.04


      I really don't know if I played this hand correctly.

      Flop: I know that the strategy says that I should check/fold here in a freeplay if I don't have TPTK. Still I wonder if I could have considered my J has a high enough kicker ( I doubt that someone had AK or KQ here) and bet.

      Turn play: Should I have folded here? I still had top pair "good" kicker.

      River: When I saw the river I told to myself that he probably had also a K. Was my move correct?

      Bet flop) board is absolutely dry and your kicker is quite strong) pocket pairs and weaker kings will pay off) As you correctly noticed there is no many options for your opponents to have a better hand, unless one of them is slowplaying, but it is not very likely...

      I would re-raise on turn

      river is fine

      I do not mind the flop check first to act, because it gives you the opportunity to check-raie. But after everybody checked, too, you have to bet the turn.
