      On turn & river I was wary of the potential flush but figured given villians line its ok to play bet / fold.

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $3.23
      Hero:
      $2.1

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (10 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K:heart: , Q:spade:
      6 folds, Hero raises to $0.07, BU folds, SB calls $0.06, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.16) 8:diamond: , 5:diamond: , 2:spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.11, SB calls $0.11.

      Turn: ($0.38) K:diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.22, SB calls $0.22.

      River: ($0.82) 7:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.34, SB calls $0.34.

      Final Pot: $1.50

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of kings (Kh Qs)
      SB shows (Ks 6s)

      Hero wins with a pair of kings (Kh Qs)

      why betting so small on turn and river? if you know he's a calling station and think you're ahead bet usual 2/3 pot, or even more(turn for protection, river for value), otherwise check behind for a free showdown might actually be a better idea. just my 2cents

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, I'd still bet a bit bigger on turn & river. You can most likely get more value from that kind of station. :) Also of course we have an easy Bet/Fold if we even get raised.

      Best regards.
