      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 9, A.
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, 3 folds, BB calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.65) A, K, 3 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero checks.

      Turn: ($0.65) J (2 players)
      BB bets $0.30, Hero calls $0.30.

      River: ($1.25) 6 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50.

      Final Pot: $2.25.

      I decided to check back the flop with my medium strength hand thinking that this way I can get 2 streets of value from Kx, but also that I'm not building a pot with A9 when he can be defending with better aces. I decide to call both turn and river as my plan is to bet here anyway, and he can easily be betting worse. Kinda unorthadox line for me here.

      Hello Meemawuk,

      I don't like at all the Check behind there, rather just bet it and try to protect and even if you take down the pot right on flop then rather be happy than sad about it while we won money and didn't lose. Otherwise as played not much to add.

      Best regards.
