      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, A.
      UTG2 raises to $0.08, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.08, 2 folds, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.19) T, K, 5 (2 players)
      UTG2 checks, Hero bets $0.14, UTG2 raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.16.

      Turn: ($0.79) 2 (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $0.34, Hero calls $0.34.

      River: ($1.47) 6 (2 players)
      UTG2 bets $1.32, Hero calls $1.32.

      Final Pot: $4.11.
      Results follow:

      UTG2 shows three of a kind, fives(5 5).
      Hero shows a pair of kings(K A).

      UTG2 wins with three of a kind, fives(5 5).

      I think i made a huge mistake calling the river, the only hands i beat there are KQ or maaaybe KJ or QQ, but rather unlikely cause hes 26/6, but on the other hand he had inf turn and river agression. i'm mostly up against TT,KK+,AK,55, which i only realized after calling :f_cry:
      what else can you say about this hand, the flop c/r of him demonstrates great strength, which should make me cautious...?

      Hello abc794,

      It's very likely a trap. And therefore it's rather a fold on river for me. Although on turn you can Call still for the given odds but that's it.

      Even on flop his line is really interesting, definitely note him down. He doesn't even CBet with made hands just Check/Raises being PFA.

      Best regards.
