      I dont think you're ever felting him here unless he has a weirdly played set or something like K8 (and you already have KK). If you put him on a pair plus straight draw, like JT/J9 your river bet should be designed to get value from that sort of hand.

      This means that your bet is too big. I'd never find myself betting more than $1 here, something like $0.70 - $1.00 depending on his WTSD. But he might just assume you're commiting yourself and fold anyway. If you check he might bet a Tx hand, but I doubt it.

      If you would've bet the turn bigger like 70 cents. Than you have $1.15 left on the river and the pot is then $2.24 which leaves you with just a 1/2 pot bet left and he might be more inclined to call.

      Hello joeldowey123,

      Not much to say about the hand. Could maybe bet a bit bigger on turn but ain't a huge mistake. Nice hand!

      Best regards.

      I did not notice the turn bet Sizing. Very good point! If you size better on the turn he'll struggle to fold the river with any pair.
