      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BU (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, K.
      UTG1 raises to $0.04, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.04, MP3 calls $0.04, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.19, 2 folds, UTG1 calls $0.15, MP2 calls $0.15, MP3 calls $0.15.

      Flop: ($0.79) 7, 9, 4 (4 players)
      UTG1 bets $0.10, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.60, UTG1 calls $0.50, MP3 folds.

      Turn: ($2.09) 9 (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $0.56, Hero calls $0.56.

      River: ($3.21) 5 (2 players)
      UTG1 bets $0.97, Hero calls $0.97.

      Final Pot: $5.15.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, kings and nines(Kc Kd).
      UTG1 shows three of a kind, nines(9s Qd).

      UTG1 wins with three of a kind, nines(9s Qd).

      So could I have found a fold on the turn? Only thing I couldn't beat was a set, and those they usually slowplay and wouldn't bet out. And putting him on a nine even A9s would be hard as he called the big 3-bet pre-flop, but then again he was playing loose. And on the turn and river I kinda felt I was beat so just threw my money away.

      Hello Krishjanis,

      Well, the question is if we even can raise the flop. :D What's your plan if one of those guys 3bet you?

      But as played according his sizes and donks I doubt that we beat much. We have shown strength on flop by raising and he still decides to donk it and even this time rather strong. Which might be a hand which very likely beats us. Rather fold it.

      Best regards.
