      UTG2:
      $2.35
      MP1:

      BU:
      $1.97
      SB (Hero):
      $2.01
      BB:
      $2.00


      Preflop: Hero is SB with 9, 8.
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.02, 2 folds, CO calls $0.02, BU folds, Hero calls $0.01, BB raises to $0.04, MP1 calls $0.02, CO calls $0.02, Hero calls $0.02.

      Flop: ($0.16) 9, 8, 6 (4 players)
      Hero bets $0.08, BB calls $0.08, MP1 folds, CO calls $0.08.

      Turn: ($0.4) K (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.28, BB calls $0.28, CO folds.

      River: ($0.96) K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.69, BB calls $0.69.

      Final Pot: $2.34.
      Results follow:

      BB shows three of a kind, kings(K Q).
      Hero shows two pairs, kings and nines(9 8).

      BB wins with three of a kind, kings(K Q).

      I guess when i saw the K on the turn, i thought he might have a K so i bet the pot. But when the other K came out on the river, i wasn't so sure he had the K.

      I´d prefer c/f river or b/f quite small to 0.3$, since now you split most 9x hands, flush got there and he may easily have there Kx
      It is hard him to call down with worse hand than yours

      Hello oribken,

      Just Check/Fold the river. I don't see any reason even to bet it there. Your 2pairs doesn't work that great anymore since any better 9x has you beat. Also the FD completed so I don't really see much value betting the river anyways. What worse will Call you?

      Best regards.
