      BB: $2.55
      UTG: $4.97
      UTG+1: $2.01

      MP1: $1.09
      Hero (MP2): $2.00
      CO: $0.84

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is MP2 with K :club: J :heart:
      3 folds, MP1 calls $0.02, Hero raises to $0.10, 2 folds, SB calls $0.09, 1 fold, MP1 calls $0.08

      Flop: ($0.32) 5 :heart: J :spade: K :spade: (3 players)
      SB checks, MP1 checks, Hero bets $0.26, SB calls $0.26, MP1 folds

      Turn: ($0.84) 2 :diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.42, SB calls $0.42

      River: ($1.68) T :spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.34, SB calls $0.33 all in

      Preflop: I isolate the fish, but SB ends up calling which I dn't like.

      Flop: Obv good flop, easy bet for value & protection.

      Turn: Great turn, SB only has $0.76 left so I could put him all-in, or bet smaller and give him the chance to shove over me with his draws/top pairs. Which is best? Maybe I should've bet ~$0.60?

      River: Well he checks the river, even if he shoved we'd have to call so is it ok to put him all-in here?

      i think you played it well. nice flop and you could maybe just put him all in on the turn because he is probably going broke by that point anyway and it wouldn't be unreasonably big given the pot size by that point. i don't think it matters too much either way since he will either go broke on the turn or river. any Kx, Jx, 66-99 will probably call and pay you off.
