      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      BB (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, K.
      MP2 raises to $0.75, 4 folds, Hero raises to $2.50, MP2 calls $1.75.

      Flop: ($5.1) 2, 9, K (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.00, MP2 calls $3.00.

      Turn: ($11.1) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $7.00, MP2 calls $7.00.

      River: ($25.1) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $13.20

      Villain-unknown.Is it best to bet/bet/bet here?I dont think that I can fold the hand on any street if I get raised.However,I dont see him calling me 3 streets with worse hands apart from KQ(if he calls 3bets with it).The FD arrives on the river but is still shoving best?

      Firstly, I would just call preflop.

      Since he's unknown, we have to assume a quite strong UTG range
      and we obv don't want to play a big 3bet pot OOP vs a strong range, now do we?

      As played, turn is pretty ugly - I see check/shoving or just overbet shoving as viable options, not really sure though, but yeah, I would be as happy as I could be with my hand by getting the money in on the turn.

      Even if he folds, we're more than happy to just take the nice pot down and he most likely isn't folding his (pair+) draws anyway.

      You can consider c/rai if you don´t want to make difficult river decision, but I think bet/bet/shove is quite standard line
      He has there enough worse hands and nut just flushdraws, that might call you down.
      Other option would likely be c/f river but that is quite exploitable
