      Preflop: Hero is BU with K:heart: , K:club:
      UTG calls $0.02, 6 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, SB folds, BB calls $0.06, UTG calls $0.06.

      River: ($0.93) 5:heart: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero bets $0.26, UTG raises to $0.26 (All-In).

      Final Pot: $1.45

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      UTG shows (9c 2c)
      Hero shows a pair of kings (Kh Kc)

      Hero wins with a pair of kings (Kh Kc)

      Flop is not too scary even with two opponents, the turn didn't aid the most likely draw JT (except JdTd). Opp stack was quite short to price him out of a possible flush draw so I set up to take his stack over 2 streets instead.

      Hello Brevvy2190,

      Preflop: While there is a limper raise 5xBB.
      Postflop: Guess I'd just bet a bit bigger on flop and get it in on turn vs his stack. :) He doesn't have much left anyways.

      Best regards.
