      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is SB with K, K.
      3 folds, CO raises to $0.40, BU folds, Hero raises to $1.20, BB folds, CO calls $0.80.

      Flop: ($2.5) 2, 3, A (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.00, CO calls $1.00.

      Turn: ($4.5) 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks.

      River: ($4.5) J (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $2.14, Hero calls $1.70.

      Final Pot: $8.34.

      Results follow:

      CO shows a pair of aces(Qd Ah).
      Hero shows a pair of kings(Ks Kc).

      CO wins with a pair of aces(Qd Ah).

      Same bullshit as ever. He raises, I reraise KK, he calls out of position and an ace comes on board. I think I'll start check/folding these boards because I'm losing too much money.

      You are better off check/calling most often on the Flop rather than betting. If you do not understand why then you have to study abit more on Why are we betting in the first place

      Your 3bet sizing can be a bit bigger because then you can shove under potsized

      Best regards,

      I bet because of 2 :diamond: and a straight draw. On another board I'll probably check because I'm making valuebets for my opponent if he has Ax or scaring away weaker pairs that I already beat.
      But anyway the assumption that he will fold weaker pairs is just theoretical, at this limit they might call anything. And if I let him bet how will I know if he has ace or not if he bets big?
