      0.25/0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with K:spade: , K:club:
      UTG1 folds, Hero raises to $2.00, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $2.00, 4 folds, BB calls $1.50.

      Flop: ($6.25) A:heart: , 8:spade: , 2:spade: (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $3.85, MP2 calls $3.85, BB folds.

      Turn: ($13.95) Q:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $6.65, MP2 calls $6.65.

      River: ($27.25) 3:spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP2 bets $11.5, Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $27.25

      Can we find a call here? Would blockbet-fold have been a better line?

      Then again with the flush draw making it, aces in his range and the possibility of weirdly slowplayed sets, snap check-fold on the river, and possibly should have not barreled the turn?

      I doubt it.
      I think against 2 players, its a c/f on the flop allready. Or if you chose to bet and get one call. Its c/f on the turn or river.

      Nope, check/fold is good here.

      Hello Jaissica,

      Well, vs 2 opponents I don't really see how we can Bet the flop. You ain't gonna get called from TT/JJ/QQ. Rather just Check it behind and might even get called from those. Only hands you get value from on flop is FDs.

      As played I'd most likely just Check it on turn while the opponent is even rather passive guy. Plus of course your bet just doesn't give any protection from draws, you are giving him perfect odds if you even wanted to protect.

      Best regards.
