      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with J, A.
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.16, 3 folds, BB calls $0.12.

      Flop: ($0.34) K, 9, 2 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.20, BB calls $0.20.

      Turn: ($0.74) K (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.45, BB calls $0.45.

      River: ($1.64) J (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      Final Pot: $1.64.

      Opp is basically unknown ,30/25 on 30 hands.
      My question : if I think that opp's range is mostly constitutes of small pp and maybe some gutshots is paired K on turn good spot to IInd barrel for me. On one hand K shows that I less often have K,but on other hand I represent some big pair, the same K (which according to my position pfr I have more often) and I'm not totally bluffing,I have 6 outs vs pp.On turn just bigger pot to win,I need about 40% folds to be profitable and with outs even less? What do you think of it?
      Thanks :)

      Hello dallievas,

      Basically I'd rather just Check behind on turn. It's more often the case that he is going to continue there anyways, rather than give it up.

      But as played the river, I guess I would still try to some value from weaker pairs. Because even if he had the Kx, he would be very likely to Check/Raise or donk himself.

      Best regards.
