      Hi, i had this hand
      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $4.02
      CO:
      $0.52
      BU:
      $0.77
      SB (Hero):
      $1.82
      BB:
      $2.00
      UTG2:
      $1.70
      MP1:
      $2.85
      MP2:
      $2.29


      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, K.
      UTG2 calls $0.02, MP1 raises to $0.05, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, BB folds, UTG2 calls $0.06, MP1 calls $0.03.

      Flop: ($0.26) 4, 3, K (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.12, UTG2 calls $0.12, MP1 folds.

      Turn: ($0.5) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.24, UTG2 calls $0.24.

      River: ($0.98) 8 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.61, UTG2 calls $0.61.

      Final Pot: $2.2.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, kings and threes(Q K).
      UTG2 shows two pairs, kings and threes(T K).

      Hero wins with two pairs, kings and threes(Q K).

      ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      I was playin 0.01/0.02 NL on PokerStars

      UTG2 was kinda a maniac very passive on postflop action, he would basically call every hand, unless he really had no chance of winning the hand;

      but basically he'd try to see every flop, he was very loose

      as you must see it was a really close call win, and i didnt even suspected he might have a Top pair too.

      How could i have read his hand better or should i have taken a different tactic on the turn and the river?

      Ty in advance

      Heyhello Padrezulmiro,

      According to your stacksize, you are close to playing BSS. Therefore I would like to ask you to post it in the BSS section next time.

      Fortunately for you, I am happily judging this hand from a BSS perspective :f_grin:


      You make your mistake preflop because I would either reraise bigger (as a bluff) or call the MP1 raise

      Then on the Flop K:h3:h4, one should bet at least $0.20 here for value & protection. Continue betting roughly 60% on Turn & River results you being all-in hence getting his whole stack!

      Best regards,
      Gerv
