      Preflop: Hero is UTG1 with K, J.
      Hero raises to $0.17, UTG2 calls $0.17, 7 folds, 6 folds, 5 folds, 4 folds, 3 folds, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.41) 2, 3, K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.28, UTG2 calls $0.28.

      Turn: ($0.97) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.67, UTG2 calls $0.67.

      River: ($2.31) T (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.61, UTG2 raises to $2.32, Hero calls $0.71.

      Final Pot: $6.95.

      Opponent's stats not available since sample size is too small.

      I'm not sure how to play with this hand. I just keep value betting until the river which I'm quite worried that he might had a better kicker KQ or KA.

      I see there's odds for me to call on the river when my opp shove.

      Please advice how to play this hand better. Thanks in advance :D

      Hello slashng,

      Preflop: I'd basically fold the hand preflop, way too early to open it from UTG.

      As played
      Postflop: Do you really see a lot worse hands calling you on river? Basically at the best I would just block-bet/fold on river since I just don't see many worse calling us. Therefore taking into account his stack I might just Check/Fold it because I don't expect to bluff there like ever. No draws or anything, he has likely us beat.

      Best regards.
